Maximum of 10 students on a particular instrument with their instrument instructor.
This instructional session allows you to get to know your band mates, and learn to work together as a band. Your band instructor will facilitate these sessions and focus on dynamics, arrangements, harmonies, solos, backing up voice and solos, chordings, rhythm, communication and more.
This is scheduled time for you to hang out with your band and jam. Every band needs to rehearse and find their own sound. Band Jam is not facilitated by an instructor allowing your band to work as a whole together.
This is the half hour of one on one instruction with your instrument teacher. A fantastic opportunity to improve your skills, and ask those questions that are unique to you. Each camper receives one half hour of private instruction during camp.
