The Middle School Band program is designed to accommodate musicians ranging from the most talented and proficient to the less experienced, with a minimum of one year of training on their chosen instrument. It is open to entering grades 7, 8 or 9. The concert bands are conducted by outstanding band directors from around the state. This session provides an excellent opportunity for young musicians to improve their individual performance skills. Instruction includes rehearsals, sectionals, master classes, supervised practice, and optional private lessons. Students who have completed the 8th grade may register for Middle School Band Camp and/or High School Band Camp.
The camp culminates with a required student performance.
Campers will audition at the Butler School of Music on Sunday afternoon. In order to eliminate crowds, audition times will be assigned. We cannot accept audition time requests. Campers will be informed of their audition time by e-mail 2-3 days prior to the start of the respective camp and must audition at their assigned time. The audition process will begin at 1:00 p.m. and should end by 4:30 p.m.
