Yes. All students attending
the UNF Summer Music Camp will audition upon arrival for band chair placement
and jazz band placement if applicable. All campers can participate in both
types of large ensembles. Advanced improvisers may also audition separately for
the camp Jazz Combos. Classical small groups are also available.
All students will be asked
to play major scales and to sight-read. We want to hear that you know your
scales and listen to your tone quality and range. You will be given a short
excerpt to sight-read.
Absolutely. All camp
faculty and staff go through a rigorous screening process and campers will be
monitored at all time. Camp staff will also be available by phone for parents
to call should a problem arise.
Yes. If you know who you
plan to room with in advance, list your desired roommate on your camp
application. If not, arrange for your roommate to check in to the dorm at the
same time and tell the counselor whom you want to room with. You may also
e-mail Dr. Bovenzi with your roommate request.
Yes. We want you to feel comfortable.
There are a limited number of combo positions
available. We are limited by the amount of rhythm sections attending the camp
and playing ability. We do not feel it educationally sound to pair beginning
rhythm sections with advanced horn players or vice versa. Combo is for advanced
players and improvisers. See the Jazz Combo audition requirements on the camp
Unlike other music camps, we allow students to play more
than one instrument. You will need to audition on each instrument that you want
to play. Since jazz bands meet at the same time, you need to decide which
instrument you prefer for jazz band. If you notify us in advance, you can
attend different master classes on different days. For example; if a student
plays saxophone and clarinet, they may attend saxophone class one day and
clarinet class on another. They will play saxophone in a jazz band and clarinet
in symphonic band. They can bring either instrument to improvisation class. Be
sure to list your secondary instrument on your camp application!
