4 Awesome Reasons to Join Summer Piano Camp

Every summer, Hoffman Academy hosts a fun-filled piano camp. Choose a themed cabin, then download a packet that will guide you through a week of exciting piano learning adventures including video lessons, music theory funsheets, and creative activities. Here are four reasons you should join us!

1. Camp Packets are FREE for Premium users!

Whether you have a basic free membership, a Premium account, or are totally new to Hoffman Academy, you can join any or all of our Piano Camp cabins! Premium members can access the packets for free, or each packet can be purchased for $7.99. Created by our expert team of music educators, these seven packets are bursting with summer learning fun: Activity packets, playlists, and printables! Once you have your packet, you’ll have the option to purchase sheet music from or music publisher Hal Leonard, but all of our video lessons and tutorials are 100% free for everyone!

2. Beat the summer practice blues!

Sometimes it can be hard to keep up with practicing over the summer. Piano Camp will light a fire under your mini musician with:

  • New songs to learn, including the Legend of Zelda theme song, Lean on Me, A Whole New World and the Adventure Time theme song!
  • Fun and engaging activities, like composing your own songs, creative listening exercises, and learning about awesome musicians!
  • A Talent Show so you can show off your new piano skills!

3. There’s a cabin for everyone!

Pick from seven cabin themes based on your young musician’s interests. Each cabin comes with its own activity packet and a special Spotify playlist.

  • Classic & Cool: For young maestros looking to learn some traditional favorites.
  • Movie Magic: Owls and Ewoks and Batman, oh my! Learn music from your favorite movies.
  • Christmas in July: It’s never too early to start spreading cheer with these Holiday Classics.
  • Brave Adventurer: Calling all future Piano Heroes! Learn songs from Frozen, Moana, and your favorite cartoons.
  • Pop Star: Find your inner Piano Superstar with songs from Katy Perry, Elton John and more. 
  • Mr. Hoffman’s Hits: Be a real hit when you learn some of Mr. Hoffman’s favorite tunes on the piano, including Linus and Lucy, The Mission Impossible Theme, and We Will Rock You.
  • Challenger: For the piano player with 1-2 years of experience, this cabin will stretch your skills with exciting and challenging songs like Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, or All of Me by Jon Schmidt.

4. Be part of a global musical community!

Hoffman Academy is an ever-growing community with over 200 thousand learners worldwide. Use the hashtag #HAPianoCamp to see what students around the world are doing, and to share your own progress and creations!

So come camping with us!

One of the best things about Hoffman Academy Piano Camp is that it happens in your home, at your pace, on your schedule. We’ve organized five fun-packed days of camp activities for each cabin, but you can always go faster or slower, whatever works best for you! You can even take Piano Camp on vacation. If you’re away from a keyboard for a few days there are still listening activities, video lessons with your camp counselors, fun music worksheets, and you can always keep your fingers in shape by practicing “air piano!”

Get ready to join us when Hoffman Academy Piano Camp returns in June 2024!
