Course Description

Concert Band Camp at Shell Lake Arts Center is wildly popular!  This year we will host two weeks of the same musical fun and growth that has attracted over 100 students to camp each summer.  Join us for one or both camp sessions as both weeks are similar, yet different musical offerings!  Students completing grades 6-12 work side-by-side mentoring, performing and learning about a variety of musical concepts.  Classes in theory, history, improvisation, conducting, and even polka bands are offered for all students.  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:

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

**Concert Band Camp is going international this year!  We are excited to welcome conductor José Antonio Blasco Lambíes from Spain who will be here with us for both weeks of camp this summer!**

Students may attend both weeks of Concert Band Camp!
