How To Apply

Summer 2019 will be the 78th summer of the FSU Summer Music Camps, and we are proud to continue the mission of providing outstanding summer music instruction to all students who show an interest in music.  We are committed to providing an experience that allows the students to grow as musicians and young people in a safe and supportive environment.  We seek to hire staff - both counselors and instructors  - who are professional, thoughtful, and inspiring to this next generation of music students.

 

It takes a lot of hard work to run the day-to-day operations of the camp. We rely on a strong team of individuals to make it all happen, and this year we have positions open for counselors and instructors.  

The first job responsibility for all camp staff is to ensure that all campers are safe and properly cared for.  Depending on which job you are hired to do, this responsibility could take many forms.

If you are hired, the Camp Director, Assitant Directors, and your area coordinator will provide detailed information about your specific job duties, rules, and expectations.
