About Us

Our mission is to inspire creativity, confidence and character through excellence in music.

At EUSMC our goal is to foster musical excellence in a safe, supportive environment, providing an atmosphere where students achieve far more than they thought possible. Our purpose is to develop the whole child, providing opportunities to grow not only as musicians, but as young men and women equipped to become positive contributors to society. Our faculty of nationally renowned musicians and educators fully embrace the principles and ideals of EUSMC.

Thomas A. Brown, Founder

An internationally acclaimed ASCAP composer with over 400 published compositions, and a respected educator, clinician and musician. Tom believed the Music Camp was a place to emulate, by example, proper ethics in living while teaching excellence in music. While serving as director for more than 35 years he watched many alumni go on to careers as music educators, celebrated composers as well as world-renowned musicians and entertainers. As a result of the student’s musical and social experiences at EUSMC, Tom saw students become more confident and successful in many careers, not only music. Many chose music, seeing him after their Music Camp days, laughing and reminding him of the many good times they had.

From Grace R. Brown, Director

“It is an honor and privilege to carry on the work that my husband, Thomas A. Brown began at EUSMC in 1976. My goal is to maintain the same high standards by offering a high-quality music program in a safe, friendly environment, with a dedicated faculty and staff, providing a wonderful time for all. The memories created, and the supportive friends made will be with you for the rest of your lives!”

From Sean Lowery, On-Campus Director

“It has been my honor and privilege to be involved with EUSMC since its inception 43 years ago. I take the responsibility of the care and well-being of the campers very seriously and do everything in my power to ensure that each student is cared for musically, socially and emotionally. My goal is to return your children to you better for their experience with us. Not only will they be better musicians, but they will be more appreciative, respectful and enthusiastic toward learning!”
