Camp Descriptions | Towson University Summer Band Camp tumb_admin
Brass, Woodwinds, Percussion, and Color Guard Camps
The brass, woodwinds, percussion, and color guard camps aim to put a 2 minute production on the field in just four days. After completing a detailed clinic on basic marching and musical techniques, we start learning drill, music and guard work. Along the way, the students will be introduced to many important concepts such as: warm up techniques, how to read drill charts, how to deal with sound delay, techniques to clean forms, tips to memorize music, health and safety on the field, rehearsal etiquette, leadership sessions, and much more. With staff members from past and present seasons with the Towson University Marching Band instructing the students, all levels of marching experience will benefit greatly from this camp. At the end of the camp there will be a performance for family and friends.
Drum Major Camp
Students attending the Drum Major Camp will participate in activities to enhance skills in conducting, commands, teaching, saluting, and leadership. We use video recording and one-on-one time with staff in order to improve individuals’ drum major skills and confidence in front of their bands. We will also give each student conducting experience in front of a small ensemble. The staff for this portion of the camp will consist of past and present Towson University drum majors.
