he University of Montevallo Department of Music welcomes middle and high school-aged choir, band, orchestra, piano, guitar students and aspiring music technologists and composers to the 15th annual Young Musicians’ Camp, Sunday, June 10 through Friday, June 15, 2018.

This one week, residential experience provides superior instruction combined with the fun and friendship of a great summer camp. A variety of ensemble and master-class experiences are conducted by our internationally recognized UM music faculty and guest artists. Evening activities include swimming, field sports, cook-outs, movies, and talent shows. Individual private instruction is also available in guitar, voice, piano, and for all traditional band and orchestral instruments.

Participants should be between the ages of 11-18, be able to read music, and have completed at least one year of study in a school band, orchestra, choir, guitar class, piano class, or have taken private lessons outside of school. Experience in music technology is not required for the music technology program, only the ability to read music.

Camp tuition includes a single or double occupancy room, all-you-can eat buffet-style meals, instruction by university faculty holding doctorates and select visiting artists, instructional materials, admittance to evening activities, and a camp t-shirt. We are fortunate to hold camp tuition costs at the same rate for a sixth straight year, $395 for double occupancy and $495 for single occupancy rooms, the lowest rate in the state based on camp length and offerings. A $100 deposit is all that’s required during online or mail-in registration.

All-State Band, Choir, and Orchestra participants or piano and voice students who placed in an AMTA sanctioned event qualify for a YMC All-State/AMTA Scholarship. For those who did not participate in All-State or AMTA, talent and need-based YMC Opportunity Scholarships are also available.

Individuals needing disability-related accommodations during this event should contact the host department or Disability Support Services (205.665.6250, DSS@montevallo.edu ) as early as possible. Efforts will be made to accommodate all access requests regardless of timing, but the University cannot guarantee that requests made with less than one week’s notice can be met.
