Summer Music Camps

SUMMER BAND CAMP INFORMATION

2019

We would like to encourage you to consider enrolling your child in a BAND CAMP this summer. Students have several choices of one or two week camps sponsored by major Texas universities. The cost of these camps can vary. The day camps start around $150 and the overnight camps start around $400. The overnight camp costs include overnight housing in the university dormitory, three meals per day in the university cafeteria, and quality instrumental instruction from superior music staff personnel.

Band camps are extremely beneficial for all performance levels. Without the structure of the daily band class, it is difficult to motivate students to practice over the summer months. Band camps have proven an effective way to help students continue their interest and progress. The students will have a full day of musical development and training with specialists and master teachers. Most band camps are structured with full band rehearsals, instrumental sectionals and elective classes. Social activities are planned for the evening hours and many students will make lifetime friends.

All camps are well staffed with quality instructors and the students are well supervised during all activities. Students who plan to stay overnight may select a roommate of their choice. Please consider this great opportunity for your young musician!

Many camps are limited in space, so send your deposit to the university as soon as possible. Detailed information from the university band camp office will follow upon receiving your deposit.
