Course Description

Concert Band Camp at Shell Lake Arts Center is wildly popular!  Join us for the musical fun and growth that has attracted over 100 students to camp each summer.  Come for one or both camp sessions!  Students completing grades 6-12 work side-by-side mentoring, performing and learning about a variety of musical concepts.   Classes offered for all students may include, but are not limited to theory, history, improvisation, conducting, and even polka bands.   There is a middle-level band and a high-school level band.  Chamber ensembles will be offered as well as ensembles like garage band percussion.  Students love to come back each year and continue to learn and grow! 

Here are just some of the elective offerings that will be featured at camp this year (subject to change):

World Music, Body Percussion, Composition, Theory (7 Levels!), Music History, Improvisation, Conducting, Chamber Music, Polka Band, Jazz Band, International Music Selection

Students may attend both weeks of Concert Band Camp!
