Texas A&M University-Kingsville continues its tradition of low cost, high quality instruction for middle and high school band students, with its 2006 Summer Band & Auxiliary Camp June 25-30.

Participants will receive instruction in the areas related to school band programs from a host of visiting Texas band directors of note. They include high school band directors from Richland and Mansfield; middle school directors from Northridge Middle School (North Fort Worth) and Los Fresnos; jazz band directors from Fort Worth Paschal High School and Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Memorial; and drum-major/leadership instructors from Lake Highlands High School and Fossil Ridge High School (Keller).

The camp requires that every camper participate in one of several concert bands, with students classified by ability on their instruments. The bands available include jazz, brass choirs, woodwind ensembles and percussion ensembles. Lecture courses, color guard classes, drum major classes and other electives also are offered at the camp.

Cost for campers is $295 for residents, $210 for commuters and $150 for Texas All-State Students.
