It’s never too early to nurture young musicians. The EMF EXPORERS camps cater to a young child's natural curiosity and desire to learn. Led by The Music Academy of North Carolina's music education specialists, EXPLORERS enjoy interaction with EMF faculty and students. Each day campers explore and discover music through a variety of activities including instrument demonstrations, instrument making and playing, singing, and a unique introduction to melody, harmony and rhythm. All children are welcome to register, and acceptance is not based on musical experience.
