What are students saying about Concert Band at America’s Camp?
Doing what you love and learning everything you possibly can all at the same time was awesome
After attending the Symposium my director could really see an improvement on my technique
I personally couldn’t believe how much I improved in the 4 1/2 days I was there
Music for All’s parent/booster training and advocacy programs and resources are key elements in Music for All’s vision to be a catalyst to ensure that every child across America has the opportunity and access to participate in music making in his or her scholastic environment.
What Should Your Child Bring?
