‚ÄúMy daughter loves your camp so much she made me arrive at least 20 minutes in advance every day, so she doesn‚Äôt miss a thing. After last year‚Äôs camp, she joined it again this year ‚Äď twice, and she enjoys it tremendously. Thank you. I think we will sign up for violin lessons this coming up season.‚ÄĚ

R.B., Oakville

‚ÄúGuitar and drum presentation was one of the best features of this camp. Besides all other instruments, my son started to love guitar and cello. He was so excited to come back every day for the camp! Thank you for this opportunity. We would not be able to decide what instrument is right for him if it wasn‚Äôt for your camp.‚ÄĚ

N.O., Oakville

‚ÄúMore parents should know about your camp and Junior program. I would sit through it for hours if I could. You make it interesting and it is amazing how much you cover!‚ÄĚ

Grandmother, L.A., Oakville

‚ÄĚ ‚Ķ thanking you for the wonderful summer violin camp you provided. Our son started the camp very interested in the violin and completed the program being able to play 4 songs. He also enjoyed learning about the history of the violin and how it works. We now look forward to continuing with lessons in the fall.‚ÄĚ

Through her dedication to music education Klaudia conveys her knowledge
and love of music to her students. Our kids’ experience has been fun,
educational and their appreciation of music will surely last a lifetime.‚ÄĚ
