Hear what's being said about CMP!
"Our 9th Grade son took part in this week-long camp and had an excellent experience. He learned a great deal from Ian not only about playing and recording music, but about the music industry in general. CMP has left him more enthusiastic than ever about playing and recording. We would highly recommend CMP to others." - Ciara B., Blobfish Activity Hub Review, 7/27/17
"We could not have asked for a more inspiring or thoughtful coach than Ian! His approach to teaching and guiding the students through their sessions was truly remarkable. We got to listen not only to the final recordings but also to the collaborative sessions themselves, hearing the students offer their ideas. Ian's helpful feedback was never heavy-handed; he let the music emerge and let the students go where their creativity would take them. The final performance was great. Ian set the mood for a really supportive and fun event, and the band sounded amazing! Four months later, they are still playing together and preparing for their next gig!" - Garret C., Blobfish Activity Hub Review, 12/11/17
"For the second time this summer, a trio of local high schoolers makes its onstage debut just five days after meeting as participants in Creative Music Performance’s boot camp. There, area musician Ian Leinbaugh offers band advice while guiding songwriting sessions, rehearsals, and a single-day EP recording." - Spencer Griffith, Indy Week preview, 8/23/17
