I am still tingling at how much I was able to grasp by just using my ears! Then, having the music to look at afterwards was great b/c I can continue to work on these “tunes”. This single activity in your camp has inspired me to do more of this kind of teaching with my own students. CB – Elementary School Music teacher

It was great! I loved getting to play different styles of music and trying out new techniques and ideas. I also met a lot of new people and got to know some friends. I got over my fear of improvising and it was great to know that it didn’t matter if you made a mistake or hit a wrong note.  – CS, student, age 15
