The 2018 Texas A&M University-Commerce Summer Music Camp Series is underway with the Texas Summer Flute Symposium this week.
The Texas A&M University-Commerce Leadership Camp features some of the top leadership clinicians in the nation, including Frank Troyka, Director of System Blue Education. Throughout the Leadership Camp, students will learn techniques in both music and marching that will assist them with their future leadership endeavors in the academic year. In addition, leadership campers will be lead through a vigorous exercise routine by renowned exercise guru, Scottie Escobel.
Drum Major Camp
Students attending the Drum Major camp are given the opportunity to immerse themselves in conducting, leadership and teaching techniques in order to prepare them for their upcoming seasons. Featured clinician Koji Mori (former drum major with Phantom Regiment, Band Director Lassiter HS, GA, BOA Drum Major Institute) and the rest of the camp staff offer a varied curriculum including beginning and advanced conducting gestures, score study, marching pedagogy, practical teaching labs, dealing with the listening environment, and technologies for the drum major and the marching rehearsal. Additional breakout sessions are offered including conducting challenges and females in leadership. All drum major campers will have daily leadership sessions with Frank Troyka, Director of Education for System Blue.
The Colorguard Camp provides participants intensive, interactive training in body, dance, flag and weapon (rifle and sabre) choreography at the novice, intermediate and advanced level. Colorguard Camp staff, led by Lauren Potter (TAMUC Colorguard Director, Colorguard Theatre), are leaders in the drum & bugle corps, college and high school band activities.
All Colorguard Camp participants attend daily fitness classes with Scott Esquibel from The Cooper Clinic, and leadership sessions with Frank Troyka, Director of Education for System Blue and clinician with Conn-Selmer, Inc.
Group discounts are available for schools who wish to send their entire colorguard ensemble to camp. Private instruction for these groups is available with advance registration and prepayment of fees. Please contact the Summer Music Camp Series office for more information about private instruction.
