Absolutely Cherished

“I absolutely cherished this experience. Every day seemed like a week in terms of volume of hard work and growth that I was able to achieve.

I’m at a much better place with myself as a player and person because of it. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone looking for such an experience. I was also extremely pleased with the musicianship of the other campers and it was so cool to watch everyone else’s growth. It was tremendous to be a part of it.” FLHSI Participant
