TESTIMONIALS

It was the most amazing and enjoyable week throughout the whole summer! Patrick (1st year Vancouver Academy of Music clarinetist)
It’s an awesome experience to work with the excellent faculty. I learned a lot of stuff this week!  Really enjoy the camp! Bryan (3rd year, University of Victoria cellist)
My experience at this camp was amazing! Since this was my first time playing chamber music, I learned a lot of new things related to playing as a group. It was a pleasure working with other musicians and putting together a piece in just a few days. It’s always great making new friends, and I’ll definitely be back next year for a whole new experience.Jade (ARCT piano)
We would like to thank you for hosting the Bosendorfer Summer Music Camp this year which my daughter Isabel attended. She really enjoyed the experience, the music and the performances! She especially enjoyed meeting new friends and performing together. Thank you to you and all the instructors for sharing the enjoyment of music with all of us at the summer camp Michael (parent)
