We are excited to announce a newly expanded High School Band Camp for students entering 9th grade – 12th grade.

NEW DRUM MAJOR ONLY TRACK - This specialized leadership program will be focused only on drum major skills – these students will not participate in the other music aspects of the camp. The drum major track will offer full-day/evening, weeklong curriculum needed to train drum majors to successfully lead their band. These sessions are designed to give these students the necessary skills in conducting and vocal commands. These drum major specific skills, in combination with the excellent leadership training sessions, will prepare the student to be a highly effective drum major.

Outstanding camp staff and leadership includes: Bobby Francis, Camp Artistic Director & Symphonic Band Director; Brian Youngblood, Camp Personnel Director and Concert Band Director; John Alstrin, JP Wilson, and Matthew Schaul, Camp Leadership Directors.
