Summer Band Camps:
There are several band camps throughout Texas that specialize in working with young band students. At camp you will work with professional music teachers, play in a real band (with a real concert at the end of the week!), play games and participate in activities. Most of the camps are taught at University campuses.
Most of these camps have audition music and scales to place you in a band. Get the audition information for your camp as soon as possible! Here are a few websites to get you started:
