Welcome to SummerKeys 2024
A Music Vacation In Lubec, Maine
SummerKeys offers the busy adult an opportunity to be immersed in the study and practice of a musical instrument. The premise is: come as you are and enjoy the study, the work, the camaraderie, and the beauty of the Maine Coast. The program is open to all levels – from beginning students to accomplished players. While both study and practice at SummerKeys are intensive, the atmosphere is relaxed and noncompetitive. You work at your instrument in ways that are rewarding to you.
Lubec, Maine is a lovely old fishing village that feels stepped back in time. In a setting of pristine beauty, on a hill at the end of a peninsula jutting into the Bay of Fundy and abutting Campobello Island, it has remained isolated from the frantic quality of modern life.
The international boundary marker between Maine and New Brunswick is located at the tip of the town breakwater, and you can walk into Canada across the International Bridge. Area attractions include Quoddy Head State Park and its famous West Quoddy Lighthouse (the easternmost point of land in the US) and, on Campobello, the FDR Residence, the East Quoddy Lighthouse. The great Fundy tides rise and fall about 18 feet in the crystal-clear waters surrounding Lubec, where you can see fish and watch harbor seals frolic at high tide.
