My first camp. Superior experience. Very well organized and we were all well fed. Enough instructors so if one wasn't "right" for you, there were other choices. The instructors are all superstars and the most personable, likeable and approachable people you could want to meet. I learned more than just how to play better, I learned about music and the joy of playing. Very accepting of beginners, like me. I'm going again next year. Highly recommended.
Overall Rating: 10
Great camp, great instructors. Plenty of time to learn, not so much that your head gets too full. And short enough so you don't have to take a week's vacation to participate. Classes and jamming inside--a necessity in Texas in August. A little more student jamming would be a good thing, although the instructor jams were amazing. Endlessly entertaining (and very supportive!) camp administrator.
