Camp Overview

The purpose of the band camp is to provide a fun and rewarding musical experience for local band students who will have completed 6th, 7th, or 8th grade band. The day-camp will run from 9:00am-1:10pm each day, with an End-of-Camp Concert on Friday. The cost is $185 for one week. This is a bargain considering that most Texas Band Camps cost between $400-$600 for one week of camp!

Your child will be surrounded by the Bay Area’s finest band instructors. See the "Staff" tab for a list of staff members.

In order to place students into the ensemble that is best-suited for their playing ability, we will host an audition on the afternoon of Sunday before camp starts. Audition music will be posted on-line at the end of the school year.

The daily camp routine consists of three 70-minute segments that will include a full-band rehearsal, a large sectional, and a small group sectional that will facilitate each different instrument. Students will be given a short break between each session. Camp will end by 1:10pm each day. On the last day of camp, we will extend our daily schedule to include an ensemble concert.

At the end of our fun-filled week, the students will demonstrate what they have accomplished in the Grand Concert. Parents, family and friends are welcome to attend the free concert! Concert start times are 6:30PM, 7:15PM, and 8:00PM.

“Stars and Stripes Summer Band Camp” is staffed with an outstanding array of music instructors who care about children and know how to make learning fun! Combine that staff with the exceptional group of young musicians that fill the local Bay Area band programs and the outcome promises to be a rewarding experience for all involved.
