WHO CAN SIGN UP?

  • Students of all levels are welcome to participate the Utah Jam Bands camp, but some musical background and training is encouraged for a more positive experience. Instructors will place students into groups with those who are at similar levels. 

 

 

  • The camp experience is designed for students between the ages of 8 and 19. 

  • Personal practice throughout the event is an integral part of making each student's experience successful. For this reason it is preferred that those who join the camp either own or rent an instrument so that they can practice outside of the rehearsals and classes.
