Students will also have the opportunity to take a private lesson with our artist faculty and be exposed to smaller, chamber ensemble music, coached by faculty and staff members at the University of Alabama School of Music.

PRIVATE LESSONS DURING CONCERT BAND CAMP
Students are encouraged to take advantage of our world-class faculty by scheduling a private lesson with the faculty during the week of Crimson Concert Band Camp. These lessons can be scheduled by the camp attendees during the chair placement auditions on the first day of camp. If you are interested in scheduling a private lesson, you should let the professor know during your chair placement audition. There is no cost for the lesson however, lessons are at the discretion of the professor and will depend on their daily schedule. Not all faculty will be able to schedule lessons during the camp. A listing of the email addresses of the camp faculty members can be found HERE.
