Austin Summer Camp

Mr. Louis’ Austin summer camp helps young musicians to identify and develop their individual strengths. Each child learns music theory, since it is the foundation for all music as we know it today. Mr. Louis specifically chooses materials and methods that are geared to the age and learning style of the student being taught, in order to provide a very comfortable atmosphere.

Because every child varies in their tastes and abilities, Mr. Louis introduces a variety of music genres such as classical, jazz, pop, musical theater and more. Each child is invited to participate in the Tribe of Rocks: a Children’s Music Collective facilitated by Mr. Louis.

Sing. Strum. Bang A Drum!

Music Lessons

Mr. Louis works with schools and other organizations in the Austin area, offering lessons in guitar, piano, drums, and more! Private lessons are available for anyone seeking one-on-one music lessons. Students who take private lessons often improve rapidly and develop confidence quickly with intensive, individual instruction. Mr. Louis creates an engaging and interactive environment where children of all ages can learn and grow through music and song.
