Each student chooses a primary instrument
and a secondary instrument to study

Primary and secondary instruments refer to instruments the students are playing and/or the instruments they will be learning to play. Each student is expected to play two instruments while at the Academy, a primary instrument and a secondary instrument. The primary instrument is the instrument that the student plays when he or she enrolls in the camp, or the first instrument they choose to learn how to play. The secondary instrument is the second instrument they choose to learn how to play. A student who does not play an instrument has to choose a primary instrument which will be their main focus, and a secondary instrument that they want to learn as well. During the first period the students will go in their primary instrument class (the instrument they already play or their first choice). During the second period, the students will go to the instrument class of the secondary instrument they have chosen to learn. 

  • Students who have instruments are asked bring them

  • If student instruments are broken we will fix them

  • We will loan students instruments who have no instruments

  • We will rent (at no cost) large instruments or instruments for which we have no loaner
