"I loved the music! I liked all the private instruction time."

"I liked the fact that we had free time filled with electives, especially music technology because I love composing. Furthermore, I loved the music we played in all aspects. The Academy really got me motivated to practice.  I loved it!  I liked the concepts covered in the higher level theory class. I can’t wait until next year…I hope I get to come back."

"I liked everything about the Academy!  The counselors were great, the professors were wonderful. Everyone was nice and friendly. I can’t wait to go to school in the fall."
