"My first Bass BootCamp was two years ago, and I'll be going back this year. When I walked in the door I didn't know anyone and when I walked out, I had a musical family I wasn't expecting. The instructors are knowledgeable and open to sharing everything they know. I can't wait to see everyone again and soak up as much new knowledge as possible."
