    I'm looking for a good program to attend this summer, but so far I havent been able to come up with anything. I've already decided against the Berklee Summer Bass Lines program, since it would not be very cost effective for me ($800+ for 3 days). I dont really care where the program is, I just want to try and keep costs below ~$500. I know most programs would probably be jazz-oriented, which is fine with me. Anybody have any recommendations?

    It's about 700 -which I knowm is more than you were looking to spend, but I don't know if you'll find something less expensive

    My private instructor runs the bass camps in CT for NGW. They're good from what I hear (just started taking lessons from him again this past summer). I think I'm gonna go this coming year. You could probably ask questions of him. He's a good guy. Here's his website.
