I'm new to the forum but have turned to it for insights and information in the past. I'm an adult who has returned to playing piano more regularly after studying in my youth. I've wanted to participate in a summer "piano retreat" for a couple of years, but of course in-person options were impossible last summer and are very limited this year. Unfortunately, I don't think I'd benefit much from a virtual option, what with a young family and rowdy dog at home.
I had really set my sights on Summerkeys (thanks in no small part to some of the reviews I read on this forum), but they are not doing their in-person sessions this summer. It appears that Rocky Ridge Music Camp in Colorado is planning to hold their adult piano program, however, so I wanted to see whether anyone had recently participated and might provide some guidance. I'm fully vaccinated and am comfortable with any in-person program that adheres to recommended safety protocols. My major questions are:
1. Is Rocky Ridge really good for pianists of all levels? (By way of reference, I would characterize myself as squarely intermediate.)
2. The campus seems nice (maybe not quite as lovely as coastal Maine, but that's just my taste). Is the overall experience enjoyable, and is there sufficient time to enjoy the surroundings?
3. Is the instruction supportive, especially for someone who hasn't taken a lesson in many years and is prone to nerves?
Any thoughts on those questions, plus any additional information or insights you may have would be greatly appreciated!
