Eligibility

To be an overnight camper, students must have completed grades 6, 7 or 8 in the ’21-’22 school year and have at least 6 months of school instruction on an instrument.

Younger students who have completed grades 4 and 5 during the ’21-22 school year and have had at least 6 months of instruction on an instrument may attend as day campers.

No audition is required to register and all ability levels are welcome. There will be a placement audition at camp check-in to determine your ensemble assignment.

Florida State is committed to providing a quality education to all qualified students and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability. Please contact our office to discuss any questions or accommodations that may need to be made for your camper at least three weeks prior to the start of camp.

Placement Audition

Many of our camps have a placement audition at check-in to determine ensemble and chair placement. Some camps also have a music theory survey to determine your level of theory experience. These events take place during Administrative Check-in before you go to the dorm. Once the camper completes these check-in activities we will build a class schedule to fit.

Campers should prepare the following for the Band Camp for Middle School audition:

Two scales of your choice
Two solo excerpts, etudes or short pieces

  • One piece should be slower, lyrical
  • One piece should be faster and more technically demanding
  • (Percussionist should prepare a snare piece and a mallet piece)

Once ensemble/chair placements have been made they will not be changed.
