Contest for New Name for Music CampSchools, Teachers and Camps: Please help us find a new name for the PITTSBURGH JAZZ AND FIDDLING CAMP. Thanks to Caeli Smith for inspiring me to bring this contest to v.com
From Roy Sonne
* The name should be easy to remember, catchy, and unique.
The name can be very simple. For instance:
Or it can include a tagline or second line. In other words it could look like this:
(We don’t really think Fiddle-Utopia is a good name, but we wanted to show you how the name will be used.)

From Emil AlbaneseDon't tar and feather me but how about "Pijazzle". Sounds upbeat, can be used as a verb and it captures all the elements. Just wondering what the tuition is?
