The West Music Conservatory in Cedar Rapids/Marion has a musical summer for you!

Summer is here, and we've got a great lineup of camps, classes and workshops planned! As students take a summer break from school it’s a great time to pick up a new instrument or keep playing the one they already have. West Music has a variety of classes, camps, and activities to keep the music going all summer long. Download your own copy of the West Music Conservatory Musical Summer brochure for Cedar Rapids/Marion for full details and a registration form, and contact the Cedar Rapids/Marion studio coordinator to register!
