"Playing a musical instrument enhances a child’s quality of life. It provides creative, emotional, and social opportunities and can lead to improvements in academic performance in other areas beyond music. Colleges and universities often need instrumentalists for their orchestras and may offer scholarships to qualified students regardless of their intended academic major."

Westmont College Department Chair’s Notes
"The Westmont Academy For Young Artists presents a marvelous opportunity for students to sharpen their skills, meet musical friends, forge relationships with top-quality artist teachers, and infuse their summer with a dose of inspiration. The setting is beautiful and the music making is alive with spontaneity."
-Dr. Shasberger, Adams Chair of Music and Worship
