Whether your child is drawn to Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift or Mozart, is an accomplished musician or just getting started, summer camp is a great way to explore the craft while having loads of fun and making new friends. We've lined up 10 of our favorite music day camps for New York City kids with an eye toward striking a good balance between theory, practice, musical styles and ability levels. A few of our picks offer multiple programs divided by age, others split things up by experience level and one even takes campers on a daily visit to a popular indoor climbing facility—sometimes even accomplished musicians need to work out the wiggles.
Don't forget to browse our Summer Camp Guide for additional options or use our Camp Directory to search for programs by interest, age and location. It's also worth noting that many camps offer financial aid, as well as discounts if you sign up early and for multiple weeks.
