On behalf of Ryan can I sincerely thank you all for putting on such a great camp. he thoroughly enjoyed it: both the formal and informal playing, making new friends and being introduced to new techniques outside his comfort zone in a nurturing manner. He already wants to sign up for next year. -Ian Slater (Director of Music), The Armidale School
I know Bella is planning to email you but I just wanted to put in my 2 cents worth and let you know what a GREAT experience she had at Jazz Camp.
You have managed to turn Jazz from an interest to an obsession: every instrument in our house has been getting a full on work out since she got back. She loved the friends she made and all the great things she learnt but in particular, she loved being totally surrounded by music from 7am – 10pm and sharing it with like minded beings.
She will definitely be coming again next year. Thanks again, you do a great job. – Tina H.
When I picked up my son after jazz camp he said he was pumped and it was the best week of his life. He showed me his not book and shared with me his learnings. He was so very pleased to have learnt so much. He and his friend found all of the participants really helpful and that there was not competition. Everyone worked together.
So congratulations and he will be back next year. Thanks again for providing such a great opportunity.
– Hedy B, Bathurst.
Thank you so much for your skill and dedication to all these young people, and for your special ability to direct them to a level of quality that should sustain them, as practitioners and as listeners, for the rest of their lives.
Thank you, thank you for all the support and information and encouragement that Oliver received over the camp
He has already signed up for lessons with Jamie at Jazz workshop, and has come back (even more) focused and motivated (if that were possible).You guys are great!

I want to pass on our congratulations on such a wonderful camp. We were blown away with what you guys did during the week. We spoke to William a few times through the week & he just raved about the fun he was having, the things he was learning, the performances he saw & the whole experience in general. From day 1 he was asking if he could come back next year & has talked of nothing else since. He has gone back to school today raving about the camp & how awesome it was.
I hope you & John & everyone in front & behind the scenes are proud of the camp this year, as a parent I cannot believe that it runs so smoothly. What an unbelievable experience for our kids to have! – Aby & Bret F, Queensland.
Thank you to you especially for the coordination and wonderful work that you have done to bring this all together. I must commend you on your professional and efficient organisation which made everything so easy for us to enrol, keep informed and get prepared for this experience.
Yi-Wen had a fabulous time: he was thrilled to have been there to make music with outstanding musicians, making many friendships of common interests, learning from the best tutors and enjoying the amazing bands who came to play for the camp. Thank you for making it all possible!
He will certainly be coming to more! – Maylene L, New Zealand.
I’d like to thank you all for your efforts. It sounds like my daughter was engaged from start to end (which is no mean feat). – Linda C.
Thanks again for the camp, it was the best! – Edward S.

Just wanting to let you know what a wonderful time Lauren and Emily had at Jazz Camp. They have come home bursting with all the new things they have learnt and the amazing people they have met and heard play. It is truly a unique opportunity for all of these kids to experience such talent in an up-close and informal setting.
Once again thanks for looking after our kids so well there is nothing they could fault: location, facilities even the camp food was great!
I wanted to extend my personal thanks to you – and all of the people involved – for organising and running Jazz Camp. I feel that my son grew enormously as a result, both musically and socially, and will definitely sign up for next year. Lesley Stoneman, Associate Lecturer, School of Teacher Education, Charles Sturt University.
