Review for Alaska Arts Southeast Inc, Sitka, AK, USA
I had the privilege of teaching keyboard classes and accompanying voice and choir classes for three summers at the SFAC High School Camp. The students come eager to learn and to interact with each other and the faculty and counselors.

This develops a camaraderie amongst the camp participants that draws them back each year to continue learning in a postive supportive atmosphere. SFAC embraces students of any skill level and seeks to build them from where they are.
