Camper Feedback


"Fiddleheads Jam Camp - the best classes, the best instructors and the best jams of any camp I've ever attended. Ellen and Melissa have created a supportive, encouraging environment that lets everyone shine. Since joining the Fiddleheads family, I've become a better and more confident musician, and I've developed friendships that I know will last a lifetime."

 "Whatever level you played at you were made to feel comfortable. I learned a great deal of practical music theory that I apply every time I play now. A fabulous weekend."

"Just so you hear it from the Horse's mouth! Your camp was awesome, very fun! The people were very engaged; I saw a lot of people step out of their comfort zone (which I know is a huge priority for you). Your staff is just exemplary, beyond words, really, I saw them do so many cool things that I don't have time to list them all!"

"My circle of musical friends has grown because of Fiddleheads Camp."

"You create a space for people to re-prioritize music into their lives without the guilt of not being proficient or having made a huge commitment to music because their life gets in the way! For those of us who are 'too damn busy' it is a wonderful hiatus! Thanks!"

"I have been to many music camps and music festivals and this one is the most fun, most all inclusive fun fun fun of any. All levels are encouraged and included--the teachers are all top-notch fantastic musicians and great people. Plus, I gain practical tools I can take home. Thank you again!"

"The instructors made you feel comfortable and no question was ever dismissed--each question was respectfully and helpfully addressed."

"Fiddleheads Camp really inspired me, I bring my fiddle everywhere I go now. My new willingness to improvise comes completely from Fiddleheads Camp."

"Right after Fiddleheads Camp I worked very hard on cementing what I had learned about improvisation. Now I like it when I don't know a song. It's a bigger challenge to see if I can guess the next chord! You can see me as one of your successes!"

"A spectacular weekend. Thank you very much!"

"I used to think there was just Classical, Celtic, and Bluegrass. Then at camp I was in a Blues band and also discovered Swing!"
