We will be talking to the students about summer camp opportunities. This is a GREAT way to motivate your young musician to continue their practice over the summer months. Most major universities around the state (and the country) have some kind of band camp during the summer. I am providing links to the registration/information websites for some band camps if you would like to find out more about them.
Pflugerville ISD (this will be a day camp at Pflugerville HS) June 11-14: More information soon!
