Thank you to Dietze Music who provided violins for our 1-week Summer Camp in Bellevue. The camp is an amazing opportunity for students to try out a violin for a week at no extra cost. Our 1-Week Summer Camp allows students to try instruments they have always wanted to try, and to see if they would like to commit to a full semester of classes!
