My son LOVED the Jazz Prep Camp.
— Jenna
My daughter had never picked up a clarinet before. In four days she was playing in a concert! I did not really know what we were getting into when we signed up. By the end of camp I was so impressed and thankful that we got in.

It was a challenging learning environment, but encouraging and attainable as well. The instructors were incredible! And the process, communication, and organization was flawless. The camp inspired my kid to jump into learning music. They have been interested before but now they are passionate about it.
