SUMMER BAND CAMP TIME!
UTA's summer concert and marching band camps are now available for registration.
Concert Band Camp - June 14-18
A fun and enriching curriculum of full band rehearsals, instrumental lessons, master classes, sectionals, and electives will be taught by outstanding high school and junior high band directors from across the state. Students will participate in one of five bands based on an audition and perform a final Gala Concert. The camp is open to students entering grades 7-12 in fall 2015.
The UTA Summer Music Camps strive to provide each student an opportunity to work with and learn from the highest quality instructional staff from around the nation. It is our desire that each student return to their own group having grown musically and personally while at the same time enjoying all the fun and excitement of summer camp life.

This five-day camp is designed to strengthen the abilities of beginner, intermediate, and advanced students, while providing a variety of experiences in fundamentals, leadership, and performance.

Drum Major Camp studies include conducting, marching, teaching fundamentals, drill and music, problem solving and leadership.
