The 2020 Judith Lapple Summer Woodwind Camp & Music Festival

will move to a one week ONLINE platform

Monday, July 20 - Friday, July 24


This year, our camp will move to a one-week online experience. Details below! We hope you'll join us for an exciting week!

Dr. Jennifer Lapple, Artistic Director

MOVING TO A ONE-WEEK ONLINE CAMP EXPERIENCE: As you know, many summer music programs are either cancelled or going virtual.  After much consideration, our program will move to a one-week online camp experience in lieu of a two-week in-person camp.  We feel this is the best decision for the safety of our students and faculty.  


OPEN TO STUDENTS IN GRADES 7-12: This new format is available for students in grades 7-12 (and rising freshman in college) as of September 2020. We do not feel it is suited for beginner/younger students who need more assistance in person.  This platform welcomes students who play flute, oboe, clarinet and saxophone.  


MONDAY, JULY 20 - FRIDAY, JULY 24: The dates of this online camp are Monday, July 20 - Friday, July 24.  Our main platform for conducting this program is Zoom, which in our experience has proven the most reliable; however, we will continue to explore the best options for online music instruction to ensure the best experience for our students.  Please scroll to the bottom of this page for details on how to make the most of your online experience.  Our faculty members have spent months teaching lessons and master classes online with great success! 


REGISTRATION: 
To register for for our online program, please email the director, Jennifer Lapple at JLAPPLE917@GMAIL.COM to confirm your participation. An application will be sent via email for you to complete.  Deadline for registration is Monday, June 22, 2020.
