The future of the music depends on the next generation as much as it depends on us to pass it along. At Ossipee Valley we are sowing the seeds of music tradition by offering a 3-Day weekend music camp for children. Free!!

Skilled instructors from all around New England will teach for two hours each day with a recital on Sunday to be performed on our Maine Stage!
Children will be introduced to a variety of music form; from basic melodies and chord structure to song crafting, voice and ensemble playing. Beginners to advanced students will explore, at their own level, in small groups on a one to three ratio. Instruments to be explored are; guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass and fiddle. Children who are not sure about joining are welcome to come and observe.
Class sizes are limited so we encourage you to sign-up ahead of time as the academy will be open on a first come basis. The academy is open to students ages 7-17.
