With the help of trained Method instructors and his series of lesson books (the fourth of which was released this past summer for more advanced students), O’Connor’s camps now teach a wide spectrum of proficiency levels, instilling an appreciation and understanding of American musical literature, diversity, creativity and improvisation in solo, band and orchestral settings as opposed to the rote study of mostly all European Baroque pieces emphasized in alternative programs.

“As the O’Connor Method for violin and strings gain in popularity, we are seeing an increasing interest in music teachers wishing to host regional summer string camps using my books for the core curriculum.” O’Connor says.

The NYC camp at Turtle Bay Music School is especially notable to O’Connor, as it marks his return to the Big Apple directing a camp for the first time in five years. “I wanted to throw my hat into the ring and personally direct the summer camp here in my hometown of New York City for next summer,” O’Connor said. “We are nurturing the joy and spirit of children becoming musical artists as the focus for us in New York City as well as all of the O’Connor Method Camps springing up around the country.”
