Heavy Metal Low Brass Camp

Northeast Campus

  • Ages: Students in grades 6–12
  • Dates: June 29–July 2, 2015
  • Days: Monday–Thursday
  • Time: 9 a.m.–4 p.m.
  • Cost: $75
  • Registration: Begins April 7, 2015

EuphTub Studios presents this day camp for low brass players with at least one year of playing experience. Join us for a unique opportunity for those of you who lug around those "Heavy Metal" instruments to get together and make some music.

Each day, you will participate in:

  • An instrument-specific master class
  • A small ensemble rehearsal
  • A large ensemble rehearsal
  • A social/recreational activity

The camp’s goal is to present musical concepts and playing fundamentals through ensembles and small group learning experiences that are often not possible in larger band settings.

You will perform with your teachers in a concert on the last day of camp.
