  • Description

    The Gatorland Band & Instrumental Music Camps are designed to offer student musicians the ability to experience the beautiful University of Florida campus, live and learn in our facilities, and get to know the wind and percussion faculty while participating in exciting music learning experiences. All campers are under constant supervision by DCF certified camp counselors who are also licensed educators.

    The UF Total Musicianship Band Camp provides an excellent opportunity for musicians with a minimum of one year of study on their chosen instrument to improve their individual performance skills while participating in full-band rehearsals, master-classes, sectionals, chamber winds, music electives and optional private lessons - all under the guidance of the professional faculty, staff, and distinguished alumni of the University of Florida. Students will have the opportunity to take elective classes in student leadership, conducting/drum major skills, theory, rhythm skills, improvisation, marching auxiliaries and other related areas. Each camp will conclude with a performance in the amazing Steinbrenner Band Hall or the beautiful University Auditorium.

    All Camp attendees will live like Gators in the University of Florida residence halls and eat at the fabulous UF dining facilities. This is a wonderful and rare opportunity to make new friends and perform great music in beautiful venues while receiving world-class instruction at a world-class institution.
