Please consider the possibility of sending your horn player to camp this summer. We have a number of excellent options within the state of Texas as well as across the country. Let me know if you attended one you really enjoyed and I will add it.

Enrollment usually opens in January, and some fill up very fast. Some are overnight, some have commuter options.

Longhorn Music Camp  Austin, TX          

In the 90's I was a camp counselor at this camp. I know all the directors that run it and have full faith in their interest to make it the best camp they can. Several excellent local band directors staff these leadership positions. I have sent my own children to this camp for several years, both as commuters and overnight. It fills up quickly.

Anticipated Middle School June 6-12, or 13-19, 2021    

High School June 20- 28, 2021

UTA Honors Horn Camp   Arlington, TX 

I had two students attend in the past, and this camp is fantastic, as it is geared specifically to the horn player. The high school kids receive All-State music by Wednesday of that week and get to work on it immediately with pros. Staffed by the Four Hornsmen quartet, including the horn professor of UT Arlington, Gerry Wood.
