Summer camp programs include Fundamental Drumming, Levels 1 and 2, Young Rockers, and Rockers.

Immersed In Music (IIM) is proud to announce its Summer Camps schedule for 2018. All camps will take place at Londonderry School, 1800 Bamberger Rd., Harrisburg, PA 17110. All camps are for ages 8 and up, unless otherwise noted.

In the 2018-2019 school year, there will be prerequisite courses for certain specialty classes, in order to insure that students can get the most out of each class. The Summer Camps are a great way to get a few of these prerequisite classes out of the way at a savings. Also, if your child is preparing to attend a performing arts school, some of our camps are a great support to help them be prepared for their entrance exam.

Refer to each camp’s description for specific pricing information. You can mail your application with a check payable to Immersed In Music, or register for classes on our website: www.immersedinmusic.com. Please note: Online payments will add a credit card processing fee.

Please note that a credit card processing fee is added for online payments.

Rockers, Summer Camp

… In this week-long course, your student will play in a band, learn songs of the band’s choice, and perform a concert of those songs. This fun filled week is a great opportunity for current students to experience a new band, and to make sure they keep their “chops” up. For students who have not yet been in Rockers, we will need to set up a time for an assessment so we can place your child in the correct band to maximize their experience.

If you are interested please contact Habiba Miller as soon as possible to set up an assessment. (habiba.miller@immersedinmusic.com, 717-579-9052)
