Marching Band Leadership Camp
Sunday, July 7 - Friday, July 12, 2013
The FSU Marching Band Leadership Camp reaches beyond the basics to build team leaders with comprehensive music and leadership skills. We provide a unique experience for any student wishing to be involved with their high school marching unit, and have trained many of the finest drum majors and student leaders in the Southeast. Instruction will incorporate all drum major styles with an emphasis on developing leadership skills, and conducting styles and techniques. Campers will work on communication skills, group dynamics, score analysis, block drills and more. All instructors at this camp are former drum majors of the FSU Marching Chiefs. A sample daily schedule has been provided below. Each evening, students can participate in recreational activities. Official recreation schedules are distributed on check-in day, but you can click here for a sample evening schedule.
This camp does not include a color guard component but color guard members are welcome to attend for the leadership training.
This camp will require outdoor activity in hot summer conditions.
