Villa Musica Summer Camps (Ages 5 – 16)

Villa Musica Summer Camps for young and aspiring musicians provide a nurturing and exploratory environment for musical growth. Camps are tailored by mixing the classic Summer camp fun with independent learning and musical expertise.

Full day camps run from 9am – 3:30pm, Monday through Friday, hosted on the LJCDS campus. Early drop off (8:30am) and late pick up (up to 5pm) can be accommodated for a fee of $10 per hour. Please communicate your pick up needs with your registration.

Half-day camps take place from 10am-1pm at Villa Musica in Sorrento Valley. There is no early or late drop off; however please let us know if there are any unavoidable circumstances in which we need to make accommodations.

If you have questions about finding the best musical experience for your camper, please contact our Camp Coordinator:

Meet Your Camp Coordinator – Ms. Nicole Olsson

Teaching is Nicole’s favorite part of the week. She has a personal connection to the El Sistema style of education, growing up in a community model of that ideology as a young musician. Striving to strengthen musical, creative, and community development with all of her students, Nicole makes sure that every student’s goals and preferences are met with understanding. As a recipient of the Alice Saunders Teaching Award, Nicole has studied violin pedagogy with Sherry Kloss at the Jascha Heifetz Symposium, and furthered her violin performance studies with Dr. Pei Chun Tsai at San Diego State University. She has also been the student grant writer for the Campanile Music Festival with Dr. Tsai since 2019.

Important Forms

Please fill out these forms before your camper’s first day with us. We want to know of any allergies they have, their emergency contact, and also if we can snap some goofy photos of them having fun at camp!
