Kathy's Music, LLC



Summer and Kathy’s Music go together! Choose a musical experience that invites your child or student to explore the arts through song, dance, art, or theatre. Summer 2021 Camps combine music and art to provide a creative experience that builds confidence and invites connection with others in a safe, age-appropriate environment.
Cultivate your artistic voice as you dive into music and art experiences that invite self-expression. You’ll find a community that respects your ideas and creates the space for you to persist, lead, create, and solve. Longer daily sessions encourage you to dive in and stay in the “arts” moment.

Our major objective during these programs is for the children to discover the fun of cooking and to realize that there is more to enjoy than just hamburgers and pizza. In creating meals themselves they are often willing to try some foods that otherwise they would turn their noses up at.  By starting early not only do we hope they will develop a passion for good healthy food, but also discover a lifelong joy of cooking.
