Summer is around the corner and with summer comes music camps! The UTSA Music Department has summer camps for flutes, band, choir, strings, keyboard and performance for students in elementary through high school grades. All camps allow students to learn and have fun in a university setting and work with current university faculty and faculty from public schools around the San Antonio area. Information on all the camps can be located on our camp page.
But camps are not only for the kids. We also offer workshops for both professionals and college-aged students. The Beginning Band Pedagogy Workshop, July 15th-19th; The Performers’ Way Workshop May 31st-June 2nd and the Dalcroze Workshop June 17th-21st are led by terminally degreed faculty and provide the serious student the opportunity to enrich their studies or career by learning techniques in movement, performance psychology and band instruction.
Students in grades 3rd through 8th interested in performing will want to take part in the UTSA Performing Arts Camp. This workshop style camp will teach students the history of theatre along with lessons in acting, voice, dance, stage props and more.
