Dear Parents,
Summer is right around the corner! It has been a very successful and productive year for the Auburn-Washburn Music Department. None of this could have possible without your tireless hard work and support. You do more for our program than you will ever know. Without you, there would be no program!
We are sure some of you participated in the Auburn-Washburn Summer Music Camp Program last year. It was a great success and there was much involvement from students of all of our schools. If you did not participate, DON'T WORRY, you will be able to do so this year! With that being said, it is time to begin enrolling in Summer Music Camp! You do not want to miss this!!!!!!!!!
What is in it for your student? A great, musical experience, surrounded by peers ranging from 6th-12th grade. This is a great camp because it helps instill confidence in our young performers by getting to perform with high school students and also is a great opportunity for those older students to serve as role models for the younger ones. The group will be led by Mr. Chris Exum and he will work on 4 pieces of band literature over the course of a 4-day camp. Since it was such a success last year, we will be bringing back the Summer Drum Circle, which last from 11:00am - 12:00pm. This will allow your percussion students a first hand experience at learning percussion techniques and music from our resident percussionist Mr. Exum. The camp will culminate with the Thursday evening concert where the students showcase all of their hard work over the course of the week.
This is a great opportunity for your student to continue progressing in their musical abilities in the summer. We know how summer can be for students and we want to offer as many opportunities to perform as possible.
