Thank You, WAMW! – From Brendan Hogan

I had the opportunity with my wife to attend a WUMB music camp for the first time at the end of February. What a blast WAMW was! It was eye-opening to witness and be a small part of such a close-knit group of supportive and passionate campers and instructors. The spirit of music-making and learning is alive and well at WUMB music camps, and I encourage anyone curious to check them out. From beginners to advanced players, all are welcome. The food is good too! Read More…
