Summer Music Camp

The UT Martin Middle School Summer Music Camp will provide students opportunities to enrich and develop their musical education. This camp, for students finishing their first year of study through finishing 8th grade, will provide instruction ranging from full band to lessons, masterclasses, sectionals, introductory music theory, rhythm workshops and jazz instruction. The camp will also include some afternoon recreational activities.


The Middle School Summer Music Camp will be a commuter camp running from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm – students will arrive in the morning, spend the day making music and learning on campus and return home in the evening. The camp schedule will run from Sunday afternoon (1:00 start) through Thursday evening.


There will be a final concert for the Camp that will coincide with a performance of the Martin Community Band. The Summer Music Camp band will perform its selections; the Martin Community Band will perform its selections with a combined performance of the two ensembles finishing the program. The performance will be in downtown Martin’s Festival Park at 6:30, rain site of the Fulton Theatre in the UT Martin Fine Arts Building.


Instructors for the Summer Music Camp will be the UT Martin Department of Music Faculty. Known for their outstanding musicianship, teaching and engaging personalities, our instructors will help you further your musical knowledge and skills while having a fun camp experience. UT Martin Department of Music students will serve as instructional assistants.
