It’s already time to think about summer, and there are some fantastic opportunities in our area to have fun and get better at playing your instrument!
Our Griffin SummerBand for all 7th and 8th grade members will be on August 9-10 and August 13-14 from 5-7 pm each evening, with our annual swim party on Friday, August 17th at the Frisco Athletic Center. These dates are considered “required” for any band students who are in town for these dates. (There are NO summer requirements for incoming 6th graders. The only beginning instrument camp recommended is the Bocal Majority camp linked below, for beginning oboe and bassoon players.)
The following are additional, optional opportunities to continue playing over the summer. Most are one-week camps and are really great experiences for the students. There are tons of great organizations this is just a few of the options you may consider!
Flute – Floot Fire
Double Reeds – Bocal Majority / Operation O.B.O.E
Clarinet – Lone Star Clarinet or Clearly Clarinet
Saxophone – Lone Star Music Camp or Young Saxophonist Institute
Trumpet – Lone Star Music Camp
