I have been to Monroe Mandolin Camp for three years now and love it.

Sitting around eating pizza and refreshments, jamming with Mike Compton himself, and other instructors is pretty much a high point for me!! I have many, many instructor friends, luthier friends like Paul Duff and Will Kimble, and students from USA and abroad.

I love the atmosphere of the camp. It is like a continuum between instructor and student with no distinction. It is like we are all on a path to improve our musicianship by studying Mr. MONROE’s artistry.

I have been to many camps, but have never felt so much a part of a family as I do at this camp.

See you in September! —George del Porto, September 17, 2017
