Parent Education Our âSummer Camp Prepâ events explain how summer camps at the Denver World Music Studio are different & what to expect. We'll answer questions about curriculum and explain how we integrate our 3 Cs: community, culture, and creativity.

If a student really wants to practice at home, we can help you locate an instrument.
