What students have to say about Karger
“Karger not only allows us to grow musically and expand our knowledge of music theory and history, but also teaches collaboration, and fosters a sense of community that high school musicians rarely find.” – Alice Hauser, Wake Forest University
“Karger is an amazing program that has opened my eyes to things that enhance my music knowledge.” – Caleb Hickman, Berklee College of Music
“What I like about Karger is how it is a very intense education program, where the instruction is taken very seriously, but the program is also casual enough that it’s fun and a good way to spend a Saturday morning.” – Genevieve Welch, Wellesley College
