Scor! Saves you Money 
Here's how...

  • Scor! days are scheduled so you can drive on the same day as camp starts and ends to avoid hotel costs for an additional night.
  • An installment plan option allows you to pay less now & sign up for automatic monthly payments. (The installment plan will not be available when camp is less than 3 months away.)
  • Scor! helps you save money on hotel costs by getting a group rate at an area hotel (save $30 per night!).
  • Scor! helps you save rental car & gas costs by providing an all-in-one facility. No need to rent a car!

Unbeatable Value 
Scor! offers great value. Pat says "Scor! was well worth every penny! " Here's why...

  • Student to Faculty ratio is excellent, often 3-1 or 4-1. 
  • Highly trained presenters for 1/2 of the cost of professional conferences.
  • For the cost of 5-6 hours of private lessons, you get over 14 hours of unique & valuable hands-on instruction from fabulous faculty on a variety of fascinating & unique topics, plus more - ensemble playing & instruction from national leading adult string educators.
  • Coming to Scor! is not just like an orchestra rehearsal. It's more like an immersion experience. You get invaluable instruction to improve your playing for life, not just improve the piece you're currently working on. You'll never know how valuable your Scor! experience is until you try it!
  • At Scor!, you won't just learn the same things you're learning in private lessons or orchestra rehearsals. Learn the secrets of professional chamber musicians that are not taught in lessons or orchestra.
  • Make friends & gain connections for more playing in your local area. Who can put a price on musical camaraderie & friendship?
