The class will have class meetings that take place in-person indoors at the DC Campus: NW and online via Zoom. A complete schedule will be distributed prior to the first class. Students should have access to a computer (preferred) or a mobile device with reliable internet access. Please review our Return to Campus Guide for additional details on our safety protocols.

A camp designed for adult string beginning and intermediate players, this new program combines a variety of learning topics and playing opportunities into one event! The program has two tracks to consider multiple skill-levels (see below). The weekend includes technical skill work on the instrument, musical topic sessions, music theory basics and review, and jam session reading. Time at the end of each day is reserved for a wine and cheese tasting session and discussion.

The official schedule will be sent out in advance for registrants. Friday’s session will take place virtually via Zoom. Saturday and Sunday will take place on campus at Levine’s DC Campus: NW. Music will be available upon the start of camp or the day before.

9:30am-4pm Early Beginner (within the first few months-1 year) Beginner players attend the introduction course and can be exempt from or participate as an observer in other classes beyond their level. Music reading ability or fluency is not required. Players must bring their own instrument. A limited number of instruments may be available to use from Levine.

10:30am-4pm Late Beginner-Intermediate (1-2 years+) Participants are fully immersed in all elements of the program and can attend the day after the Beginner Course ends. Players must bring their own instrument. It is highly recommended to have music-reading skills to get the most out of this program.
