“The highest praise I can give the exceptional Eastern U.S. Music Camp was to send my own son Cole to the camp for two summers in a row. He absolutely loved the experience in every way. He has gone on to receive numerous accolades, including two DownBeat student awards for performance and composition, as well as a full scholarship to the Berklee College of Music in Boston. His experience at Eastern U.S. Music Camp laid the foundation for the success he has achieved.”
