Experience the magic of NEMC!

Orchestra, Band, Choral, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Chamber Music, Piano, Classical Guitar, and more!

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.
