HEAR WHAT THE PEOPLE SAY

// Testimonials from happy folk

"My 7-year-old participated in String Camp in Summer 2014. She was just a few months into violin and I was amazed at how far she advanced during the camp in skills and interest in the violin. She was truly inspired by the other students and the variety of activities offered by Mrs. Laura, her associate teacher, and a guest master teacher. Mrs. Laura provides just enough structure to focus talented kids while not hindering their creativity."

"String Camp with Songbird Rising got my 5 year old feeling very comfortable with her once intimidating violin in just two weeks. Every day she came home with great enthusiasm, wanting to play all that she'd learned that day. The activities are fun, while still acting as tools to improve the kids' violin skills. By the end, our daughter was noticeably more confident in her ability to play."

"My daughter attended both Austin summer camp sessions. Before the camps, she was so nervous to play in front of people that she wouldn’t perform at her recitals.  She gained so much confidence in her time at summer camp that she now plays for friends and plays at every recital. She also grew tremendously in her playing abilities.  I really enjoyed seeing her grow during that time and we’re looking forward to her attending both camps again this summer!"
