What Students are Saying:
"I had a lot of fun at camp! Who would have thought that scales camp would be fun?"
"Playing ALL the major scales sounds kinda boring and lame, but when you do it with a group of kids, it's really great and helps your intonation alot. Camps should only be for students that want to learn, and want to improve. The select kids that came to this camp are great, and Mrs. Stewart works well with the students. The students learn to help each other."
"Could we have this every week?"
"I don't think it's coincidence that the year I went to Mrs. Stewart's audition camp was the year I finally got back into the competitive MCYO. How could it possibly be? All the hard work that I did there, the scales in the morning, sight reading drills and solo performances had a definite payoff. When I walked into the audition room, I knew I had nothing to worry about. I has already done this before! I think I learned more in those five days that I could have hoped to learn in a month of hard practice alone."
