What are students saying about Percussion at America’s Camp?

I will never forget going to MFA Camp my senior year, it had such a great impact on me for the better!

Even with all of the crazy tricks & skills I learned, the environment alone was the most mind-blowing part.

With the staff’s infallible support, I get to go home a stronger, smarter, and more confident leader.

Staying in Touch with your Student

The Music for All Headquarters staff is unable to receive and deliver messages to students by phone, unless an emergency requires immediately delivery. If you wish to speak with your child during the week, plan your calling schedule before your child leaves home.
