Camps

High School Band Camp

Students will have camps at the end of their 8th grade year for high school band. Plan vacations around these camps to be successful in marching band.
    Mini Camp is usually from 8 a.m. to noon the week after school gets out.
    Sectionals usually occur occasionally in June and July with directors or student leadership. If you're in town, they'll be fun to do.
    Summer Band Camp starts the around last week of July with Freshman camp and is Monday-Saturday until school starts to prepare for the first football game performance. Being at this camp is vital. Do not plan vacations after the last week of July.

Private Lessons

We have a wonderful staff of private lesson teachers that can teach your student weekly lessons. The tuition is $20 per lesson. We are looking at having lessons each Tuesday this summer at DeLay Middle School.



Other Band Camps

These camps are fun because students live in the dorms of the university and make new friends from all over the state. All of these camps are extremely successful and have made a huge impact on Texas music education for decades.
