Sorry, Band Camp 7th – 9th Grade is currently not offered. We’ve left this page up for reference only.

Our Summer Music Camps have been proven to be a gateway to students falling in love with music! Incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th graders will work to reinforce fundamentals learned in the band room that will help them improve for the upcoming year. Incoming freshmen usually have a lot to learn, still, before playing at the high school level. This camp will definitely provide them with invaluable information that will make them an asset to their band program from the very first rehearsal!

The camp in Fort Walton Beach runs June 22nd – July 2nd, 9 am – 12noon (No Fridays) Quality, ability-appropriate music, camp shirt, and snacks are provided. Students will perform on July 16th for parents. The cost for the two-week camp is $329 ($164.50 per week) *The additional $49.00 enrollment fee is waived.

Learning Outcomes

Do you want to be at the top of your section in band next year? There is so much to learn before you get there and even more to know once you’re in 9th grade! Join us for fun music and drilling fundamentals on your particular instrument. The best part about this camp is that you don’t have to leave the area to be taught by high-quality music instructors. Camp allows students to learn through one-on-one instruction and then put together all they’ve learned during the full ensemble workshops! That’s right, 8 hours of private lessons are given throughout the camp session! Students must bring their own instruments.

Frequently Asked Questions.

The Grow Your Gift Conservatory Music School in the Fort Walton Beach area is intentional when selecting instructors to serve our musicians. Our instructors understand this is to be a long-term commitment and that turnover is detrimental to our mission.

All instructors have an extensive background in the instrument(s) they teach.

The cost of tuition varies depending on the type and length of the music study. Students also pay other fees to enroll in and take lessons at Grow Your Gift Music. You can locate the tuition, fees, and discounts on each music lesson page.

We absolutely believe the connection is the most important aspect of studying music. After all, music is EMOTION. It’s hard to be free when there is no connection between student and instructor.

If there’s a lack of connection, our first approach is to try to resolve this by understanding the needs of the student and how we can better serve them. If no resolution is reached, we will pair the student with another instructor according to availability.

Student tuition covers preparation and instruction time offered by the instructor. This includes the selection and purchasing of select repertoire, the development of the tailored curriculum, researching best practices for individual learning styles, the instructor’s training and experience, cost of the Spring recital, supplemental materials such as tuners and metronomes, and memberships to organizations which will ultimately catapult the student to new levels of performance.

Additionally, students are afforded amenities in the Conservatory to enhance their experience and excitement while learning music.

While tuition covers everything listed above, there are a few things tuition doesn’t cover:

  • Christmas Recital – Due to the facility rental and other fees
  • Books the student will need to study from at home
  • Required items for the upkeep of the instrument of choice
