SMC Masterclasses at Home

Dear Summer Music Campers, Staff, Families, and Educators,

My staff and I have truly missed seeing each and every one of you this year. We have looked forward to welcoming young musicians to our campus for the past 38 summers to make music, learn, and have fun. While we are saddened that we could not be together this year, we are very delighted to present our new series, Masterclasses at Home.

The faculty of the School of Music and Summer Music Camp have worked very hard to prepare this series of online masterclasses just for you! Each instrument or musicianship class unit contains a set of videos and, in some cases, supplementary materials. They cover a range of ability levels and topics such as breathing, film music, reed selection, bow grip, auditioning, and much, much more. Some are play along duets, some are demonstrations, and some are taught lecture style.

While not a substitute for face-to-face camp, we offer these as a gift and hope that you will find them to be a valuable resource over the summer and throughout the coming year.

We’re already looking forward to Summer Music Camp 2021! The dates for next summer are Week 1: July 11–16, 2021 and Week 2: July 18–23, 2021. Mark your calendars now!

We can’t wait to see you all again. Be safe, be well, and let’s keep the music going!

Brad McMillan, Director
