INTRO TO MUSIC (Ages 8-12yrs)

Intro to Music Camp is a fun week-long camp that introduces a variety of instruments to new
music students between 8 and 12 years old. Each day we introduce a new instrument to our
campers and work towards playing a song together by the end of the week. Our friendly studio
environment encourages kids to have fun trying new instruments like guitar, piano, drums,
singing and bass guitar. We also introduce ear training exercises to help understand what they
are hearing when they listen to music.
Previous musical experience is not a requirement for the Intro to Music Camp

Please pack a sack lunch (and a snack or two!).
We have water and juice boxes available at the studio.
Pizza brought in on Fridays, followed by an in-studio performance for family and friends.

Parent Google Review: A Lee   ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Our 5yo has Jake as a drum teacher and Natalie as his piano teacher at JTB and they’re both the absolute best!

Jake is so patient, and fun, and embrace’s our little guy’s quirkiness. He’s so thoughtful and engaged no matter the energy our son shows up with to his lesson. Our son loves showing his friends all he’s learning on the drums and continues to love to learn the drums largely because Jake is such a great teacher."

"Mike is one of the best and most fun drum instructors out there. He is always super patient and is always super understanding and is just so much fun to be around and play and learn music with. One of the highlights and best parts about my week is going to the studio every Saturday at 2 to have fun and learn with Mike. In my eyes he deserves like 50 stars."

Quentin J

Quentin received his Master of Music degree in Drums/Percussion Performance from Shepherd University in 2016 and has been steadily teaching students ever since.

His teaching philosophy emphasizes both knowledge of rudiments and the ability to read music, as well as playing by ear and improvisation.  Quentin’s drum students gain a foundation in drum technique and are allowed to grow in their love for music at their own pace.

In addition to teaching, Quentin also performs regularly in the Los Angeles area.

 

Parent Google Review: D Dortch  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"My daughter has been taking beginner drum lessons from Quentin @ JTB.  Q is an intuitive teacher with a calming effect on nervous kids.  After a few lessons, not only is her confidence on 10 but her love and appreciation for music has grown. Especially because she was able to pick a song and artist to learn that she already listens to at home."

"Our son enjoys studying with Taylor a lot.  He started with Taylor when he was 9.  We took a break and when he we picked up again our son said he only wanted to continue studying if he could work with Taylor.  We love that Taylor focuses on basic techniques while giving our son the option to learn tunes he is interested in learning.  He communicates well and is good about following up with assignments."
