"The Moncure-Haxton Music Camp Series is a fantastic way to add a music camp to your curriculum. All of the work and planning has been done for you. Just follow the easy instructions each day and watch the kids soak up the fun. Camps provide a great opportunity to get students out of the regular instruction routine, deepen their interest in music study, and strengthen their social connection to other musicians. Parents appreciate the opportunity for their child to be involved in a safe and educational program. Organize your first camp with a fellow teacher for a confidence boost and twice the fun!"
Sandy Lundberg Piano Teacher January 14, 2017
This camp experience helps turn simple piano lessons into an enjoyable, complete, and well-rounded music education program. I think all music teachers should incorporate this music camp program into their teaching curriculum. The benefit to the students is immeasurable, and the fond memories will last a lifetime.

Sonia’s music camp is so much fun and I learned many interesting things that I wouldn’t have learned if I didn’t go to music camp. Kids that don’t have music camp as part of their piano instruction really miss out on very interesting experiences that you can’t get anywhere else.
Jason Brown Student, age 11 January 14, 2017
Our kids have been able to explore a wonderful summer musical learning camp with their piano teacher, Ms. Hunter Moncure. For the past three summers, our boys have spent at least one week with Hunter learning the faces behind the famous names, and each child comes away with a better understanding and appreciation for music.
Michael and Lydia Cadena Parents January 14, 2017
The summer music camps are fabulous. The kids are immersed not only in the music, but also the culture, food, and fashion of the time period. The hands-on activities and field trips bring the music to life. My kids participate in many summer camps, but we put this one on our schedule first. The kids love it!

I want to tell you how much fun the rock and roll camp was. We got to write a blues song and a rock and roll song too. It was so much fun.
Collin Campbell Student, age 8 January 14, 2017
The camp truly helped to inspire and motivate my daughter in her piano playing. She thoroughly enjoyed everything from dressing for the 1950s in a poodle skirt and creating her own concert poster. As a mom, I’m thrilled with her increased motivation to practice, practice, practice!
Abra Smith Parent January 14, 2017
Our children loved every aspect of the music camps. They especially appreciated the chance to study a particular type of music “in depth,” with the field trips geared to appreciation of the period or type of music they studied. Both children are greatly looking forward to this year’s camp. We wouldn’t want them to miss the opportunity.
Mark and Joni Newcomb Parents January 14, 2017
I had a great time at rock ’n’ roll camp with Miss Sonia. There was always something exciting going on. We learned about different kinds of rock music like blues, gospel, 50s, and 60s. I really enjoyed this camp. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in music. The camp was very well organized. I loved it a lot
Rebecca Schweiger Student, age 12 January 14, 2017
Sonia Haxton’s History of Rock ’n’ Roll camp was a lot of fun for my daughter, Becca. I liked the fact that she was learning about music in general while also having fun. Ms. Haxton made learning fun, which only encourages increased desire to learn more. I would highly recommend this camp for any student interested in learning more about music history.
Barbara Schweiger Parent January 14, 2017
I have held all of the Moncure-Haxton music camps many times over the past seven years and they are always a big hit. The curriculum provides all of the content material needed to run a successful and fun camp week! This versatile program has enabled me to tailor camp activities to all ages and abilities. I look forward to these camps just as much as the students do! In my experience Sonia and Hunter have always gone above and beyond to exceed my expectations!
Michelle Lavin Private Voice & Piano Teacher January 14, 2017
I have done several camps that Sonia Tressler and Hunter Moncure have created, and have loved all of them. The lesson plans are carefully laid out, with several suggestions and variations to fit each teacher's needs. I have had beginners and more advanced players in the same camp, and was able to adapt to each level easily. I would definitely recommend these camps to other teachers. It is a unique opportunity for both the teacher and student.
Carrie Hansen Piano Teacher January 14, 2017
These music camps are terrific! The students loved them and learned so much in the process. Hunter and Sonia have well laid out lesson plans and thoroughly cover everything you need to have a successful camp. I particularly like how it immerses the students into the very time period using the customs, foods and music of what you are studying each day. I highly recommend these music camp books to any teacher looking for a fun and educational experience for their students (and themselves!).
