"We have found KAMA to be consistently high quality. We have been thoroughly impressed with strong programs and passionate teachers. Our son went from hating music to looking forward to 5th grade band entirely because of his KAMA experience. We are so fortunate to have such an amazing school in our community." --Pam Choc, Salem
