Little Maestros Summer Music Camp of Brookline

Little Maestros Summer Music Camp of BrooklineAre you looking for something fun and creative for your kids to do this summer? Why not enroll them in the week-long Little Maestros Summer Music Camp of Brookline at the Brookline Latvian Church! The camp runs from August 7 – August 11 (Monday through Friday) from 9 AM – 11:50 AM on 58 Irving Street. The Latvian Church is in the High Street Hill neighborhood of Brookline and is next to Brookline Village. This summer music camp is for ages 5-8 (4 year olds are welcome with an adult).

Research has shown that music lessons are the ultimate tool to help children across virtually any academic discipline. Music lessons allow children to focus on a project (or in this case, a piece of music), break it down into many digestible parts, and build the fine motor skills necessary to create a cohesive whole. Preparation for and performance of the final product builds confidence and character. Such skills help build what is called “executive functioning” of the brain – the process that allows us to get things done and work toward a given goal.
