Interlochen Online Reviews

The course was done so well. The student portal was easy to use, the teacher was incredible, and I learned a ton. I really did not think that online class could be this engaging.

My course was beyond incredible. As someone who hadn't previously been taught vocally, I felt like I was helped a lot through the new techniques that I could learn independently and then bring back to my assignments to receive some concrete feedback.

I loved how, unlike other courses I have participated in, this allows teachers to give direct feedback and allows students to share work. The teachers and fellow students are all very kind and supportive, and it is really nice to be with other people who love the arts in a respectful environment.

I loved how hands-on the teacher was with this course.

 I would absolutely take either this course or another again in order to continue improving, as I know that this will help!

I really liked that the courses were very flexible. I was busy this summer and still wanted to learn more about scriptwriting, and I was able to do that with this schedule.
