This camp is specially designed for beginner band students and provides them the opportunity to be introduced to their instrument of choice.

We hire a staff of clinicians in each instrumental area of study and provide specialized instruction that will jump-start your young musician into a career of success!

We are proud of our excellent camp faculty and are confident your child will enjoy working with them.

Summer Band camp is a great way to let your child get their “toe in the water” and provides the students a sense of comfort after a fantastic and positive start to the new world of Middle School.

We have made special arrangements with The Music Center Music Company for students who rent from The Music Center to receive their instruments on the FIRST day of Hurricane Band Camp. Yes, they will keep their instruments throughout the summer months to continue working with it until band begins in the fall.
