Students give rave reviews to the village of Wells, the activities for the rest of the family, the chance to play with cellos, and to really grow as musicians. Many come from isolated areas where teachers are few. Lots of class time gives opportunities to really learn deeply. This year will feature a small focus on ensembles so it will be a good year to come with a buddy!

Camping and inexpensive hotels and motels along with great local restaurants make it a fine week. Nearby is Barkerville Historic Park, and Bowron Lakes Park, and running concurrently is our cello class, so the whole family can attend!
