Welcome to Upbeat! String Camp

Registration for our camps is CLOSED, but walk-in availabilities may exist. Please contact your camp director for further details:


Upbeat! is a exciting and fun day camp that will help you learn more about your instrument, improve your playing, and make you a more confident player.  Our camp faculty are some of the top orchestra teachers from Cobb and Fulton counties.  They design the camp to be challenging but also lots of fun!  It’s the perfect cure for the “summertime blues!”

There are THREE locations to serve you: East Cobb at Dodgen Middle School, West Cobb at Allatoona High School, and North Fulton at Taylor Road Middle School.  Details about each location can be found on the locations page.

Early Bird Tuition is just $245 before May 15. After this day, regular tuition is $260. Payments can be made by mailing in a check along with the site-specific registration form or registering and paying online via PayPal.

Upbeat! camp admits string players entering middle school through high school. For the last four years, many advanced students have been admitted to the Upbeat! Academy. The Academy focuses on higher-level study for the most advanced and mature musicians.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe are looking forward to the summer, with school being out and Upbeat! being in! Our teaching staff always gets excited when we think about seeing our campers. We are busy planning even more creative ways to help students excel on their instrument and in the orchestra.  We want to help campers learn more about music theory and ear training and this knowledge helps them not only on their instrument, but to be better musicians. We also have section coaching, and students may perform in chamber groups (if time permits), and enjoy recreation time. We have masterclasses by master musicians and paint violins in the afternoon with a college art teacher. We want to make Upbeat! fun and informative!

We want to sincerely thank the parents of all of our campers – you are the ones who’ve made the joy of music possible for your child.  Music is truly a lifelong gift and investment. In planning for another summer’s activities, we spend hours talking about what worked well and what we can improve each year for camp. We always welcome your comments, so please contact us if you have questions or suggestions.
