where skill level means nothing and embracing the journey is everything; where it’s understood that making a breakthrough usually begins with failing… a lot; where music is a verb, and it is happening everywhere; where the best moments will be as surprising as they are profound.
The encouragement I received at CCMC
helped me believe that I too could play music. The classes honed my skills so that I gained confidence in my playing. A whole week just to focus on yourself and your music, surrounded by supportive people—that’s my idea of an amazing time.
Camp has made a huge difference in my life.
I’ve connected with a wonderful community of musicians, learned several new genres of music, and am now playing bass (a new instrument) professionally up and down the West Coast. The joy of connecting with other musicians has changed my life profoundly.
With such an incredible line-up of teachers
and variety of classes to pick from, I’ve been exposed to and have learned to love all kinds of music that I might never have known. But my favorite thing about camp is the people!

My first time at camp, I felt musically re-born,
having discovered a million things I’d never even guessed about music. The best thing about camp is that everyone is supportive and happy to share what they like to do.
One of the great things about camp
and the wonderful community of people is that it offers a safe environment in which an adult can be a beginner.… Because of that I was less afraid of trying new things. I even took up a new instrument!
