Large and Small Ensembles, Masterclasses, Technique Classes, and Practice Sessions
Campers will work alongside FSU faculty instructor, Dr. Justin Benavidez, and other accomplished instructors to study solo and ensemble literature, work on developing proper tone production, technique development, how to practice for maximum effectiveness and how to prepare for an audition.
Combine with Band Camp
This four-day workshop runs consecutively to the Band Camp for Senior High so that students can pair the two experiences together. Having the personalized instruction of the workshop followed with the large-ensemble instruction of the Band Camp makes for the perfect compliment of camp experiences. A special discount of $150.00 is available to students who attend both.
Camp will conclude with a final performance in Opperman Music Hall.
This workshop packs so much instruction into four days that classes extend into the evening. Each evening campers will work with their ensembles from 7:30-9:00pm.
