Summer music camps are a great way to expand your musical horizons,
enjoy an atmosphere and different activities away from home, and meet new friends.
I strongly support involvement in summer camps, and would gladly
write a letter of recommendation for any of my students who are interested in attending.
Here are some of the most well-known and highly regarded camps.
