Camps & Conferences

The USF School of Music is thrilled to announce that we will be holding live, face-to-face camps this summer. Our Summer Honors Music Camp is a day-camp which consist of four components – Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, Da’ “Bull” Reeds (double reeds), and Guitar/Songwriting.  


Students participating in the Wind Ensemble / Jazz Band Camp will play in large and chamber ensembles (Woodwind Choir, Brass Choir, Percussion Ensemble, and Jazz Combo), participate in masterclasses, and have the opportunity to take private lessons with our outstanding faculty. Each student in these camps will choose an elective for the morning, which will either be Jazz, Leadership, or Guitar/Songwriting. For further details, click here


Students who wish to attend the Wind Ensemble / Jazz Band Camp MUST SUBMIT AN AUDITION VIDEO by May 21. We are only accepting enough students to fill two Wind Ensembles and one Jazz Band. Results will be announced shortly thereafter and accepted students will be sent the link to register and pay for the camp. These camps are open to middle and high school students, and are designed for advanced players. The cost will be $550 per accepted student. Audition details can be found by clicking here: Audition Information.


Students participating in the Da' "Bull" Reed Camp will play in double reed ensembles, participate in masterclasses, and learn to make and adjust oboe reeds. The top players will have the option to be assigned to play in one of the two Wind Ensembles that meet after Da' "Bull" Reed Camp is dismissed. There is no audition for the Da’ "Bull" Reed Camp and there will also be a virtual online camp running simultaneously. The USF Da’ “Bull” Reed Camp is for all oboe, English horn, and bassoon players, ages 13 and older. The cost for the in-person camp is $400 and the cost for the online camp is $250. For further details and registration, visit the Da' "Bull" Reed Camp website.


There is also no audition for the Guitar / Songwriting Camp, but space is limited so you are encouraged to enroll soon. We will have more information about this camp in the near future. This camp is open to middle and high school students and the cost will be $400 per student. 


The USF School of Music will continue to closely follow COVID protocols throughout the summer, and the social-distancing requirement during rehearsals and performances will cause us to have limited space available for campers.
