Taste O' Music

2022 Music Summer Camp for Kids in Seattle/Bellevue/Mercer Island Area

What is it?

Specific Instruments include:

flutes oboes

clarinets saxaphones

trumpets violins

trombones cellos

In this engaging 1 week summer camp, kids will try out a variety of 8 different instruments, ranging from flutes to cellos! Rather than looking through a catalog and picking the shiniest or biggest one, kids will be able to spend quality time exploring various musical apparatuses in our engaging summer camp!

Who Can Join?

Any incoming 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th graders can attend our 2022 music instrumental camp!*

No experience needed! (This camp is solely meant for kids to explore instruments and have fun being around music!) All they need is a willingness to learn and have fun!

*This is our first year starting this camp, so we are only offering a small age range because we are refining our curriculum and procedures. Submit your email at the bottom of the page to stay in the know in case age groups change!


Do you struggle with motivating your kid to practice their instrument? Here's why:

In order for kids to posses the motivation to make progress and practice daily, they must be genuinly interested in their instrument. At Taste O' Music, kids can explore various musical apparatuses before officially pursuing them, which is beneficial! In this camp, kids can finally get the musical exposure to find instruments they are riveted by and passionate about without having to commit to something like private lessons, so sign your kid up today!

Where and When

Our 2022 summer camp will happen during the weeks of July 18th, July 25th, August 1st, and August 8th. Each session consists of 5 days (3 hrs per day) worth of fun! Location is at The United Methodist Church on the northern end of Mercer Island, Washington.


Session 1: Starting July 25th, Monday-Friday, 2:45pm-5:45pm

Session 2: Starting August 1st, Monday-Friday, 1pm-4pm

Session 3: Starting August 8th, Monday-Friday, 9am-12pm

Note: Due to limited enrollments, we are currently trying to consolidate camp dates. Available sessions may have changed because of this.

Why come to our camp?

Get your kid involved in an instrument from a young age. They will be able to take away that musical knowledge and experience and use it for the rest of their lives!

At Taste O' Music's Summer Camps, kids can try out different instruments to find out which one they like the best! We take away the hassle of having to figure out which instrument your kid wants to pursue so that you don't have to worry about finding the most suitable instrument for your child!

Additional Info

Safety/COVID Protocols: In between each use, instrument mouthpieces, handles, and keys will be sanitized with certified instrument sanitizer sprays and wipes.

Our COVID protocols are similar to public schools' COVID protocols. Masks will be optional for campers and counselors. Campers must show no COVID-19 symptoms upon arrival at camp each day.

Group sizes: Each mini group will consist of a 3 camper to 1 counselor ratio so kids can get the attention and guidance they need to have a fun and memorable experience!

This will also allow for social distancing and minimize overcrowding and the risk of exposure of viruses.

What Makes Us Unique

There is a 1 to 1 child to instrument ratio, so kids can actually get the hands on experience they need to be able to choose the instrument they want to pursue in the future! We guarantee that there's no other camp out there like us!


Per Session: $225*

Your Tuition Covers:

  • Customized music curriculum

  • Access to a large variety of instruments (8 total!)

  • Music Exploration Activities (learning simple tunes)

  • Small group setting

  • In-person interaction with other campers

  • Fun summer games and activities!

Note: It is costly to run a camp like this because we need to rent out many instruments (which are pricey) and have to provide many extra reeds and mouthpieces. Having a small counselor to camper ratio as well as a 1 to 1 instrument to child ratio isn't easy! We hope you understand! Our camp is still one-of-a-kind, so we hope you consider joining us this summer!
