It’s back, it’s fun, and it’s new!

Band Camp 2021 is designed for mid-level band students grades 6-9 of any instrument to get back into the excitement of playing ensemble music again. Students will learn a variety of ensemble pieces to play together, while receiving individual and sectional attention to help hone their individual and ensemble playing skills. Don't worry, there's a good mix of fun in the week as well!

What you'll learn and discuss

Being at Band Camp is like coming back to a family reunion every summer!

During the week of Band Camp, students will work on their skills in the areas of tone, breathing, and articulation, as well as techniques in scales, arpeggios and fingering exercises.

Each day, students will enjoy a variety of opportunities to build their instrumental skills. A typical day includes:

Band Rehearsal – full ensemble
Music Class – ensemble playing, music reading
Individual Sectionals and Group Sectionals
Masterclasses – Exercises, technique, sound quality, playing opportunities

The camp culminates with a band concert on Friday, June 25.
Concert attendance policy will follow Marathon County and CDC Guidelines and will be communicated to students and families closer to the camp date.
