Ms. Samira: Owner/Director of Operations

Ms. Samira

Hello! My name is Samira Amra, director of operations at MusArt! I grew up in Brazil, where I spent my childhood on my family's farm in a small town in the south. Throughout irreplicable experiences living in the close-knit community of farmhands and their families, my core values of hard work, family, and integrity were established. Life eventually led me to the United States, where I attended Buffalo State and Rochester State universities in New York. In 1991 I graduated from Rochester with a degree in Business Administration. In 2001, I finally found my home in Apex, North Carolina, where I have happily been since. Prior to actualizing my life-long dream of opening Camp MusArt, I spent my time as an English second language (ESL) teacher as well as a kindergarten, first, and second grade teacher for the Wake County Public School System. In 2009, the opportunity finally presented itself for my dream to become a reality, and Camp MusArt was born!

Camp MusArt has now been open for over a decade, and every year has been just as delightful and gratifying as the last, if not more! I simply could not imagine spending my day doing anything but laughing, growing, learning and watching our children fall in love with music and arts!
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the MusArt family!

Zoe Senn: Director of Music

Zoe Senn

Music has always been a passion of mine. My journey started at age four when I started playing piano. At age nine I started playing violin and discovered my true love for making music. I was trained in the Suzuki method and at a young age participated in many solo performances, chamber ensembles, and youth orchestras. My involvement in music growing up afforded me the extraordinary opportunity to travel to Toulouse, France and New York City to perform. In high school I expanded my musical background even further by learning to play guitar. In 2019 I received my Bachelor of Arts in Music with a concentration in Violin Pedagogy at George Mason University, where I played in the first violin section of the Mason Symphony Orchestra. I have been teaching music nearly a decade and I absolutely love what I do. Since then I have taught a variety of instruments such as cello, viola, violin, piano, guitar, and ukulele in a variety of settings from large groups and orchestras, to coaching chamber ensembles, and teaching weekly individual lessons. I find such joy in making personal connections with each and every student and watching them grow, both as musicians and as individuals. My goal as a teacher is to help my students discover and nurture their talent and love for music, and to inspire them the way my teachers have for me.

At Camp MusArt, our goal in the music department is to provide our children with a foundation to grow their love for music. In some cases, our job is to plant the seed for them to begin their journey in music, and in others, our job is to water that seed so they can nurture an existing love for music and watch it grow. Our uniquely developed well-rounded approach allows children to feel that instant gratification of making music on their first day, while also developing essential skills over time such as reading music, which is the musical gift that keeps on giving.

Katie Zobel: Music Teacher

Katie Zobel

Hi, I’m Katie! I teach voice, recorder, and ukulele, and help teach piano too. I’ve been loving music of all stripes since I was a little kid, playing any instrument I could get my hands on. I got a music education degree a few years ago to really indulge that love, even getting certified to teach it to all ages. While I was able to teach myself some of the instruments I play, I did get opportunities to learn from teachers of various schools of study too. I’ve done a lot of work with Kodaly-based singing methods and have had the chance to learn from plenty of Orff Schulwerk workshops as well. I’m super happy to be sharing music with the kids at Camp MusArt!

Fallon Roberts: Movement & Music Teacher

Fallon Roberts

Hello! My name is Fallon. I love to describe myself as a free-spirit. Throughout my life I have been given the opportunity to explore an array of hobbies, including gymnastics, cheer, music, and visual arts. My biggest passion is music, specifically song-writing and playing guitar. I have been playing and writing since I was 9. My hard work and drive for this art form has granted me the gift of creating and performing in an indie pop/rock band. I believe that music has the ability to move souls, connect people, and heal. My dream is to establish my own art collective/label for independent visual and musical artists. I aspire to provide for them a platform where they can express their truth unapologetically.

Two other passions that come in close second are yoga and dance. I have been practicing yoga for about two years now and have been dancing since I was 4. My dance background began when I started competitive gymnastics. After 10 years I decided to move on to cheer. I began to develop a love for this new type of movement that incorporated two things I enjoyed—tumbling and hip hop.

I attended Wake Tech CC and plan to return to study Mass Communications. I hope that my studies will lead me to Appalachian State or Wilmington. My biggest concern is to remain as authentic and driven as possible. That is the fuel for success.
