Play It Forward
Mission: To enable school children to reach their full potential through music education.
Music education engages children in the creative joy of making music. It also teaches the benefits of self-discipline and teamwork while enhancing the learner’s capacity and motivation for academic achievement.

Thank you again for helping my child attend Eastman Adventure camp this year. On the last day it was great to see how much they had learned in such a short time. We loved that our child made new friends, learned new music, new instruments, worked with different groups, ensembles and different leaders/directors all while having fun. I think this program encourages all the right things and sets the kids up for success going into the next school year. Thank you, we appreciate you! - Parent Statement
