Mr. D's Music Club is a collaborative, arts-based community that brings Teaching Artists and curious kids together to Keep Kids Inspired.

About Mr. D's Music Club

Mr. D's Music Club started with one week of summer camp in 2011. From there it has grown into a much loved summer camp and after school program for children in Oakland and beyond serving hundreds of kids annually. Each year Mr. D's Music Club is recognized for the quality of its programs and the inspiration they bring to young kids.

Summer 2020 has been the biggest challenge yet. Due to COVID, Mr. D's Music Club had to transition quickly to live online creative arts programs. Thus, the Creative Spaces were born. Through thoughtful program creation, Mr. D's Music Club has brought the magic of its camps to the online world of Zoom. As much as we long for the in-person experience, we are thrilled to be able to continue working with young kids who want to explore the arts, feel a deep connection to their artistic passions and connect them with professional Teaching Artists who are committed to inspiring children during this difficult time. 

We hope your child will join us soon in the Creative Spaces.

Mr. D literally gives everything he has to his students and classes, and is cherished by my entire family.


There's a little bit of everything offered in the Creative Spaces, from singing to dancing, and all different genres of music are explored.

My kids love being able to spend time with Mr. D and meet new people, all from the comfort of home!

Communication is also top notch, so expect quick responses should you have any questions.
