Our camp was well attended, with a forecast of 55 students and actual attendance of 69 students. We met our goals of returning students from last year and new students trying the camp for the first time, and we did not have any students start the camp and drop out. We forecast for 2 student instructors, and had 3 student instructors who had attended School of Rock in the past as students. Our ticket sales increased for the final concert this year, and we received almost all positive comments on our evaluation forms. Parents showed their overwhelming support for the program on the evaluation, here are a few quotes. 1 "This was our first year at School of Rock and it was a fantastic experience! Thank you so much to all who made it happen, you are running a terrific program. My child is already talking about next year and has a renewed energy for learning his instrument. Great communication with parents, too--thank you for that." 2 "A wonderful experience for my daughter! She is already asking me if she can participate again next year! Thank you to everyone" 3 "This was a great camp and the performances were very impressive, especially considering there were only a handful of rehearsals---a testament to very talented kids and excellent instructors. I only wish we would have known about this camp sooner. My kids had a blast!" There was some constructive criticism as well, concerning the positioning of instruments on stage for the final concert and obstruction of views, points well made that we will take into consideration next year for the final concert. Candid feedback that the instructors and administrators gathered from students during the camp ranged from students expressing an interest in a new style of music, trying lessons on a new instrument, and also getting together with friends they met at the camp later in the year to jam on their instruments together.
