"I learnt a lot about playing in orchestra and chamber group, I improved my solo playing, and it was my very first participation in such a professional music festival. I got to know many inspiring people and made friendships. When I think about LMC I always have a huge smile on my face."
“Luzerne has helped me blossom into a more serious musician that reaps the benefits of my craft. When I went to Luzerne, I truly felt like I was home; talking about music and instruments with other people my age and associating with very caring faculty, staff, and counselors made me very comfortable. Overall, Luzerne has helped me improve my musicianship and realize that I am capable of so much more.”
"I learnt very much about performing chamber and orchestral music. After LMC, I really feel like a better musician."
“The performance opportunities were incredible - we (the pianists) had a concert every week.”
"My stay at Luzerne Music Center has been truly one of the best experiences of my life. The amount of time I spent as both an audience member and a performer allowed me to really understand and appreciate the beauty and humanity of classical music. I feel that I flourished musically and emotionally while being surrounded by such supportive and talented faculty and students.”
"This is a child-centered home for gifted young musicians. The philosophy is very different from that of other musical immersion programs. It is both nurturing, recognizing the needs of young children while also providing age appropriate experiences that challenge and develop their facility on their instruments."
"The staff are all professional and committed to teach the children the love of music as well as staying in a perfect setting in the forest with friends, many of which have stayed in touch in-between the camp month."

"He experienced an amazing summer filled with other amazing like-minded kids and adults who understand what it's like to have an insatiable passion for music. He came home with such a boost to his self-esteem and self-confidence because he had an immediate connection with the other kids at camp."
"He greatly enjoyed working with the music coaches and made a ton of friends. As parents we were extremely pleased with his experience and the high level of music training."
“I love LMC. It is the perfect place for making music in the summer. I can definitely see the improvement from week to week, and I also feel the excitement of the students before each concert. Students become much more connected musically and socially by the end of camp.”
