What to Expect

You’ll practice in professional, soundproof studios and be able to perform on the beautiful Recital Hall stage. Solos and chamber performances are encouraged and open to all students.

Expand your knowledge of composers, musical time periods, and music theory in helpful sessions designed with you in mind.

Compete with your team in a variety of musical games, and work together to compose a Scripture song to see who will win the challenge.

Master exciting music for the closing Gala Concert which will amaze your family and friends!

However you spend your free time, you’ll be spending it with your newfound friends. You can explore the Sports Center—climb the rock wall, bowl with friends, cool off in the ice-skating rink, or make a splash at the water park. You can grab a smoothie at the Common Grounds Café and just hang out. Each day, daily challenges will be a time to come together and grow spiritually.

The Grand Finale

On Friday, July 22, Music Academy hosts two events that your family and friends can attend. The Honors Recital showcases the most outstanding solo and chamber performances. The evening Gala Concert features the entire Music Academy Concert Choir and Orchestra. Your family won’t want to miss these special performances!


You’ll learn from accomplished musicians and experienced music teachers. Many of them have studied under Dr. Alberto Jaffé or his wife, Daisy DeLuca Jaffé—the developers of the well-known Jaffé Strings Method and Advanced Piano Relaxation Techniques.
