We are excited to offer our fifth annual summer music camp at Otterbein University, June 5-9, 2017. The camp caters to string players (violin, viola, cello, bass), guitarists, pianists (classical and jazz), vocalists (classical and jazz), wind and brass instruments (flute, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet and lower brass instruments), percussionists and composers. The camp offers students an introduction to college music training. Daily one-on-one instrumental or vocal lessons will be combined with opportunities to play or sing in ensembles.

Our classes will focus on theory and ear-training (including jazz theory), musicians' health, music technology and the history of popular music. All summer music participants will also have the option to participate in a choir. The camp will end with a student recital on Friday, June 9 in Riley Auditorium, Battelle Fine Arts Center.

We have an overnight option: Students may elect to stay in dorms on campus, with Resident Assistant supervision at all times. To apply to the camp, please send us a YouTube link or mp3 recording of a recent performance containing two or more contrasting pieces.
