Band Camp 7th – 9th Grade Overview
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 July 6 – 16, 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.
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.
Pay-Per Lessons are ideal for musicians looking for temporary help on a piece of music. Students preparing for auditions at every level have benefitted from these short-term lessons. Musicians may choose to come to either location or schedule for a virtual session as the schedule permits.
Full Lesson Experience
Our Full Lesson Experience provides continuity in learning, incentives for being a part of the Grow Your Gift Family, Performance, and scholarship opportunities.
Grow Your Gift is currently offering virtual music lessons during this difficult time via Google Hangouts. Virtual lessons are most ideal for musicians who already have experience playing their instrument. However, we welcome the brand new musicians too!
For families with children ages 5-9, you may split the lesson into two sessions. (Full hour must be paid and utilized in consecutive 30-minute increments).
