Anyone is welcome to apply for the UNCG Summer Music Camp Staff. We do hire many UNCG Music majors because our Music School is very large (600 music majors) and because we know these students very well. Each year, we receive applications from all around the United States and a few foreign countries.

An applicant’s specialty, their instrument or voice type, is also a part of the hiring decision as we have many sectional rehearsals to cover.

One hundred percent of the UNCG Summer Music Camp Staff are career musicians: music teachers, artist-performers, and those pursuing music degrees from the bachelors degree through the doctorate. We have a large number of returning staff members each summer including some who have worked for twenty or more years. Because of that, we only need a relatively small number of new employees each summer.

Newly hired counselors, private lesson teachers, classroom teachers and conductors are subject to a confidential criminal background check conducted by UNCG.

In all, we hire about 170 staff members including the conductors, counselors and support staff.
