The University of Alabama School of Music and University Bands is pleased to host the annual Crimson Leadership Institute and Crimson Music Camps for 2018. This summer, we will offer one week of instruction with programs in Leadership Training (High School 9-12), Marching Percussion (High School 9-12), Majorette (High School 9-12), and Concert Band (Junior High and Senior High 6-12). Students enrolled in the camp will be under the leadership and guidance of the artist-faculty members of the University of Alabama School of Music. Joining the UA faculty will be guest faculty members recognized as expert leaders in the field of instrumental music education. Each member of our camp leadership team and faculty will work diligently to ensure that each student receives the highest quality camp experience. Our camps offer small group sectionals and coaching, specialized courses, and master classes…all this while spending time sharing music, leadership ideas and creative choreography with some of the most outstanding musicians and teachers in the country. We also provide our campers with a Crimson Music Camp t-shirt, supervised recreation time each evening, and a fantastic finale performance (NOT INCLUDED AT CRIMSON LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE). Educational and insightful classes and rehearsals during the day, combined with fun-filled evening activities make Crimson Camp 2018 the place to be! REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE ON MAY 18, 2018!

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.
