Interlochen really is an amazing experience. I would recommend it to anyone who is serious about their art and wants to work intensely to improve their skills. The atmosphere is wonderful and I made many lifelong friends in my years at Interlochen. Don't be scared off by the price, there IS financial aid available for those who need it, and many other scholarships.

Interlochen is literally one of my favorite places! The environment is so full of energy and people so willing to share their art! I've been two summers in a row and am about to start my third, so I highly recommend it!
