BEMIDJI — Headwaters Music and Arts will host a series of Suzuki-based music camps the week of June 27 through July 1.

Led by Headwaters instructors Jessica Westlund and Julia Anderson, Suzuki’s “Mother Tongue” approach to teaching music builds on the principles of language acquisition, a release said.

Those principles include an early beginning, listening, loving encouragement, parent/guardian support, constant repetition, learning with other children and then learning to read, the release added.

Suzuki Jump Start Camp held from 9 a.m. to noon each day will introduce participants to violin and teach beginning skills using the Suzuki method. The camp is for children ages 4-13 with no prior music experience.

Suzuki Step Up Camp sessions for students ages 5-16 in two different time slots. Choose either Session 1 from 1 to 4 p.m. each day or Session 2 from 5 to 8 p.m. each day.

The camp is for players of string instruments who would like to get more comfortable playing with others or playing by ear and should have one year of playing experience.

Families may reserve a space with a $40 deposit; each camp session is $150 per child.

Violin rental is included in the program courtesy of Schmitt Music Company. Registration deadline and full payment are due at headwatersmusicandarts.org. For more information contact (218) 833-3865.
