BAND CAMP

Many universities in Texas offer band camp sessions during the summer. Band Camp is a wonderful opportunity for students to continue to make music throughout the summer break. While at band camp, students rehearse and perform in a unique ensemble made up of students from across the state and beyond. Opportunities are also available for students to take classes relating to many aspects of music including music theory, composition, and private lessons. Follow the links below for more information about band camp.
