Class Descriptions:

Advanced Large Ensemble:  This is the largest ensemble of the camp featuring the most advanced high school and college students.  The group will perform 3-4 selections for the final concert at the grade 5 - 6 level of difficulty.  This ensemble may feature solo players as well.  The group is very fast-paced and technically and artistically demanding, but also very rewarding.

Studio Classes/Instrumental Choir:  These classes are unique to each instrument (flute studio class, clarinet studio class, etc.) and focus on concepts specific to the instrument.  Teachers may focus on technique, reed making, sight-reading, blending, intonation, etc.   The studio classes work on trios, quartets and quintets in small group settings to develop these concepts.  These studio classes will perform  selections on the final concert. 

Master Classes:  These classes are designed for selected students to

perform for guest artists or faculty within the camp.  Students may perform

solo repertoire  or chamber music and will be coached in front of the camp

audience.  These master classes are beneficial to all who attend, regardless

of instrument.  They may be a part of the studio classes, or scheduled

independently during camp hours. 

Small woodwind ensemble:  These classes are designed for

beginner and intermediate groups to accommodate a smaller

number of players with mixed instruments.  They focus on

trios, quartets, and quintets.  They will prepare

selections to perform on the final concert.  

Specialized Workshops:  These classes are presented during the camp (usually at the end of the day).  All students are welcome and encouraged to attend.  Feature classes include topics related to performance anxiety, taking better auditions, making professional recordings, music and psychology, orchestral repertoire, scales and technique, instrument repair and more.  

Competitions:  Students will have the opportunity to participate in a solo and chamber music competition.  Students may perform solo repertoire or chamber music of their choice.  Winners will be announced on the final concert and will receive a monetary prize.
