Mater Dei High School Music Academy believes in building individual confidence and group collaboration by pursuing excellence from day one. All students are encouraged to excel spiritually, and musically through expression and individual creativity. Students who are involved in music are more likely to stay engaged in school, earn higher grades, build intellectual curiosity and creative thinking skills, develop language and reasoning skills, and build pride and confidence within themselves.
Mater Dei High School Band Camp registration is open for students in 4th – 8th grade. The Monday-Friday band camp will be held at Mater Dei from July 9-13. Mater Dei’s experienced teachers will teach your child everything they need to know, step by step. From how to assemble and care for the instrument to reading notes and rhythms, your child will be guided through the process.
Summer camp registration is $150. The fee covers: five days of instruction (private and large group), camp t-shirt, music folder, music, instrument (if student does not currently own one), team building games/activities, and many more.
The costs associated with band depend on which instrument your child chooses and if you already own an instrument. Families may visit bepartoftheband.com, watch the different instrument videos with your child, and discuss the different options. Teachers will also help guide your child based on his/her musical interests, physical make-up, and instrument availability. Your child knows what he/she wants, you know your child, and Mater Dei teachers know music. Together, your child will find the instrument that he/she will not only enjoy but will give his/her best chance of musical success.
Enroll online materdei.org/musicacademy or call 714-641-5455. Registration is open until July 3, 2018. If financial constraints prevents your child from being able to attend summer band camp, please reach out to Taylor Smith at [email protected].
