Great! My daughter had a good time, her fiddle playing improved, and she is even more excited about Irish music.
Thanks to everybody who helped make the youth camp possible. It really gives me a lot of motivation to keep learning Irish music. See you next year! I’m already looking forward to it.
I had a great time. Liz Carroll was the highlight of my excitement, but I enjoyed everything!
Great Youth Camp!! It was my fifth year to attend and I plan on returning.
“My granddaughter said that it was even more fun than she had expected.”
I think of the sacrifices my grandmother made to bring her Irish music to this country and to share it with her six children and 18 grandchildren… she would be so proud to know that her great granddaughter attended this camp and learned to play the piano as my grandmother did, by ear!
I want to thank all of the coordinators, teachers, and volunteers who made this music camp a super success for our children.
I appreciate the great program that you put on for the youngsters! Everything was perfect! Keep up the good work!
We wish it could have lasted longer!
You brought back memories of my grandmother’s box accordion that she brought over on the ship 120 years ago. I have always loved Irish music and dance, and to think that my daughter can learn this, thanks to all of you, amazes me.
Absolutely A+++ This was nothing like I could ever imagine.
Everyone was super friendly.
My children were very excited about Irish music and what they were able to learn in such a short time.
My kids had fun, met new friends, and learned a lot.
My child LOVED it! He learned a lot, had a wonderful time, was well looked after, and would love to come back!
My daughter and several of the fiddlers from Austin were featured at a performance last night, and they played a tune they learned at camp. They were so proud of all they learned.
My daughter absolutely had a wonderful time! She learned new music, and made new friends. This connection made her care more for her Irish heritage.
My daughter’s fiddle instructor was great – good instructions, a nice way of speaking to the kids, and she also demonstrated the music beautifully and clearly.
Both of my children’s instrument class teachers were extremely helpful and very friendly.
My daughter loved her fiddle class. The second day was a little challenging, which was good.
My daughter and I loved the instructor concert. I think it gave her a goal to achieve, and also the hope that she herself could have friends join in and play together.
My kids had a great time, and want to come again.
My daughter’s teacher was terrific, and I could tell without asking that my daughter adored her. She must have magic in her heart, for they connected in a very special way.
My sons raved about their guitar class.
The instructor concerts were a great chance for the kids to hear how the music should be played, and to see how the instructors truly enjoyed the music.
My son loved his flute teacher. He was great with the children, and very approachable. Also such a talented player, very inspiring!
After the camp my son missed it so much. It was an experience he will never forget.
Regarding the instructor concerts: Absolutely a joy to be able to sit, listen, and enjoy!
My kids loved the Tune Tussle. Their instructor/coach was great!
I’d only signed my kids up for one day of the camp, but they had such a great time that they made me bring them back for the second day!
Fantastic instructors. My son loved them.
The Tune Tussle program was fun for the kids and helped them to join together and work with each other. My daughter really enjoyed this class.
My daughter did not want to leave so I know she enjoyed it very much.
I enjoyed the Tune Tussle performances quite a bit as a viewer; it was very creative and so much better than listening to six groups of kids stand up and play the same three or four songs.
Both girls thought the instructor concerts were excellent.
We love you guys, the sessions were inspiring and fun.
My daughter thought the Tune Tussle was very fun…
Instructors were excellent and easy going. Children were challenged beyond their skill level, but had fun in the process.
My son loved the whole program!
My children loved their classes and instructors!
The classes were excellent, according to the young fiddlers in our house who participated.
The classes challenged my daughter to break free from the constraints of music on a page.
My daughter felt there was plenty of structure, however it was balanced with an allowance to play at your own level.
Great! My son had a wonderful time.
I could describe the camp setting, the instructors, concert, and BBQ as well as the time that you had the children, and it still will never tell the story of what a terrific experience it was.
We will definitely be back and will encourage friends to come too!
My daughter loved her beginning fiddle class and has been playing her tune a lot with her siblings. They plan to perform it in a family concert soon!
My kids really enjoyed getting to learn about the dancing that goes with the music.
