SUMMER 2019 - Plans for joining the UM Band Camp?!!  Here is a word from Dr. James Smart.
 
 
Dear Friends,
 
I would like to invite you to register for the 2019 University of Montana Summer Music Camp on June 23-29, 2019 open to students that have finished grades 6-12. The Band Camp portion has chamber music, two concert bands, three jazz bands, and jazz combos. We also offer mini-courses that have included participatory topics like Mariachi music, Arabic music, African drumming, Balinese gamelan, recycled instruments, boom whacker band, computer composition, reed making, jazz improv, chamber music, and more.  We already have students registered from FL, ID, MT, NV, OR, and WA.  The resident registration deadline is Friday, June 7! Only commuter registrations are allowed after that.
Discounts
 
  *   Send 5 resident band campers from one school and the sixth get in at the commuter rate (band director’s discretion).
  *   Send 10 commuter band campers from one school and get the 11th free. (commuter rate and at the band director’s discretion)
  *   Other merit-based discounts available too! (ex. All-State, All-NW, All-Star, etc.)
  *   Bassoons (AKA "endangered instruments”) receive discounts!
JAZZ TRACK - GREAT OFFERINGS FOR GUITARISTS, BASSISTS AND JAZZ PIANISTS!
Students will have the opportunity to work with professionals to learn more about voicings, bass lines, jazz improvisation and a lot more with daily masterclasses and one on one study. Big Band, Small Groups (Combos) will round out a fantastic opportunity to gain more experience and come away from this camp with more knowledge and confidence to bring to your jazz bands!
