Review for Hayward La Honda Music Camp, Union City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This will be the 6th year that my son, now 16, will be participating in La Honda Music Camp. It is, without a doubt, the highlight of his summer each and every year. The camp experience has been a catalyst for him to grow and improve in his music by finding a private instructor, learning challenging audition pieces, and making connections with the community of young musicians in the area. I have been impressed with the balance of rigor and fun within the program. It is clear that the instructors and counselors are extremely passionate and dedicated, which helps drive the kids to excel. As with any collection of teenagers, there are always incidents. I have been pleased with the quick and consistent way the program addresses behavior or discipline problems. The location of the camp is beautiful and the week ending performance under the redwoods is always impressive and thoroughly enjoyable. It never fails to amaze me what the kids, with the help of the amazing staff, are able to pull off in a single week. I would highly recommend this camp experience for any young person who enjoys learning and playing music in a friendly, but competitive environment.
