The following are testimonials from Summer Winds parents:

"My son learned so many new things at Summer Winds Camp, from how to march in marching band to the best way to set his mouthpiece and reed. He really enjoyed the guest saxophone expert and talked about his experience every night. He was excited to go back every day and learn more. Thank you for helping him sustain his love for music."

"I knew my child was receiving a level of musical instruction we have not been able to find in any other venue available in this region. I am pleased to report that his interest in playing has been heightened as a result of the excellent instruction he has received."

"My child had an amazing experience with NOYO's Summer Winds band camp. He experienced different aspects of music and playing in a fun and supportive environment. Additionally, everyone was kind, and he made friendships with peers from different areas of the county. He got to play the instrument he loves and share in a great experience that previewed what the regular season might look like. As a parent, I felt great about dropping him off every day! Thanks again for providing this opportunity for our kids, and I think it was a great success!"
