Music Camps:
One of the best parts about living in the Live Music Capital of the World is the opportunity for younger generations to get involved in the art of music and the Lone Star School of Music, Orpheus Academy of Music and School of Rock do just that! The best part: these camps provide offerings for almost every genre under the sun from classical and rock to Latin and Broadway!
