New England Music Camp is located on a pristine 40-acre lakeside campus in Sidney, Maine. For over 80 years, students have been enriched by our unique program which emphasizes a balance of musical gains and personal and social growth. At NEMC, students design an individualized schedule of classes and recreation to meet their interests and personal needs. Our 1:4 professional faculty-to-student ratio gives campers many opportunities for daily coaching and side-by-side instruction. Every student receives two half-hour private lessons each week with the option to add more. This summer is your time to join 180 students each session from across the country (and the world) and experience the “magic of NEMC”!
New England Music Camp cultivates an encouraging and safe community where all students excel musically and socially.
Instrumentalists and vocalists at New England Music Camp spend their mornings in four one-hour periods of music taught by a prestigious faculty of professional performers and educators from universities, colleges, and highly recognized public and private school music programs. A 4:1 faculty to student ratio provides an environment rich in sharing and learning. Students and their teachers at home often remark that “one summer of music at NEMC is like a year at home”!
Campers at New England Music Camp design their own schedules, choosing from a wide range of classes. The weekly schedule includes two one half-hour private lessons, with the option to add additional lesson time, and participation in one or more of the major performing groups. Public performances take place on Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm at our outdoor amphitheater, the Bowl-in-the-Pines.
