Summer Youth Program 2015


summer youth program

”It was a refreshing experience to learn with kids that wanted to play music and develop as musicians as much as I did. Also the teachers were some of the best I’ve ever had. They really seemed to enjoy teaching us and put a lot of time and effort into the camp. This experience truly inspired me to continue in music.” - 2012 summer youth program student
