"I just wanted to let you know how much TOPS has contributed to my daughters' life. She has been given a gift from the soloist piano teacher, Ms Isidora; a love of music.
What a joy to see my daughter's eyes light up when she talks about creating a "story" with music. I cannot thank you enough for the experience my daughter has gone through. From Mr Edgar to all of the nurturing and wonderful teachers- a Big Thank You! We will be back next summer."

"My daughter Madeline was only able to attend TOPS Piano camp for 1 week this summer due to other commitments, however I wish she had more weeks because it was such a wonderful experience. Madeline is shy and had only a few weeks of group piano lessons under her belt when she started. The fact that the instructors were able to gently encourage her and teach her a solo and duet that she performed in front of a group is truly amazing in my eyes. Thank you for the program."
"I want to thank you so much for making TOPS Piano Camp available at FAU, and for having such a wonderful staff at the camp. I am an FAU alumni, and was so happy to see that my children could learn at the same campus where their mom graduated from. They first started TOPS almost ten years ago as students. In the last 2 years, under the tutelage of Edgar, they enjoyed and prospered through their volunteering work at TOPS. Their piano instructor and I see that they have applied what they experience at camp to their piano practice technique and performance. These experiences are invaluable, and I wanted to share with you what you, Edgar, and everyone at TOPS Piano Camp have bestowed upon our family and I'm sure in some ways, everyone attending the camp. We look forward to future attendance and continued correspondence with everyone at TOPS." -
"I just want to send you my appreciation for creating this piano/creative writing summer camp. This year is our first year attending, but wow my children not only enjoyed the hard work but also had so much fun! It's so hard to find high quality summer program in our community, this summer my boys (6 and 12) learned so much.
Thank you for this experience and we definitely will return next year with a few more cousins."
"My daughter Lauren did 2 sessions and loved it! I can not say enough about how impressed we have been with Edgar and the camp. After all day at the camp, Lauren comes home and jumps on the piano for more! The interest and enthusiasm she came home with is very precious. Not only did she enjoy piano playing, she also liked the creative writing and putting together a play for the recital, which was a real treat for the parents. Not only did the creative writing counselor do different things from session to session, she nurtured the kids with their idea to do a play. That was awesome.
Edgar, we would like to have you again directing/managing the camp next year! In fact, keep the whole staff for the future please."
