Band Camp Picture

2018 Band Camp


The Augusta University Band Camp is open to rising 6th-12th grade band students who have at least one year of experience.  It provides middle and high school students with intensive musical experiences and plenty of fun. This year's camp will include the large ensemble in addition to an auditioned jazz band and small chamber ensembles. Our program will separate middle and high school students as they work on music that is appropriate for their skill level. We are also offering new elective classes this summer. In addition to the large ensemble, small ensembles and elective classes, students will attend a master class each day for their instrument taught by Augusta University faculty and other area professional musicians.  

Wycliffe Gordon

We are excited to announce that world-renowned jazz trombonist, Wycliffe Gordon, will be on staff to direct our jazz band. Wycliffe Gordon is one of the nation’s foremost music educators having held positions at Juilliard School of Music, Michigan State University, Manhattan School of Music in the Jazz Arts Program and is currently Artist in Residence at Augusta University in Augusta, GA.  Gordon is regularly featured as guest faculty, teacher, clinician and conductor for All-State festivals, band clinics, the Louis Armstrong Summer Jazz Camp, the Int’l Trumpet Guild, the Int’l Trombone Festival and countless other high school and university programs and guest appearances.
