Young Musicians’ Camp

  • The Camp

    June 18 – 23, 2017

    The University of Montevallo Department of Music welcomes middle and high school-aged vocalists, instrumentalists, guitarists, pianists, and aspiring music technologists and composers to the 14th annual Young Musicians’ Camp, Sunday, June 18 through Friday, June 23, 2017.

    This one week, residential experience provides superior instruction combined with the fun and friendship of a great summer camp. A variety of ensemble and master-class experiences are conducted by our internationally recognized UM music faculty and guest artists. Evening activities include swimming, field sports, cook-outs, movies and talent shows. Individual private instruction is also available in guitar, voice, piano, and for all traditional band instruments.

    Participants should be between the ages of 11-18, be able to read music, and have completed at least one year of study in a school band, choir, guitar class, piano class or have taken private lessons outside of school. Experience in music technology is not required for the new music technology program, only the ability to read music.

    All-State Band/Choir participants or piano students who placed in an AMTA sanctioned event qualify for a YMC All-State/AMTA Scholarship. For those who did not participate in All-State or AMTA, talent and need-based YMC General Scholarships are also available.
