Woodwinds Boot Camp at Meredith College

The Meredith College Music Department held their first annual Woodwinds Boot camp in June of 2022.  This camp is taught by Meredith College faculty and artist-teachers from area colleges including Duke University, UNC, and UNCG who perform with orchestras across the state and with the NC Symphony and the NC Opera orchestra in the Triangle. We welcome the acclaimed Blue Mountain Forecast chamber group as our camp coordinators.

Students will play in small ensembles and workshops, private lessons, enjoy faculty performances and masterclasses, and of course work on building their foundational skills on their instruments.

These workshops are a wonderful supplement to ongoing private lessons, or a starting point for focused practice and best habits. Students will be placed into chamber groups, but intermediate and advanced students may choose to register with friends as pre-formed ensembles such as saxophone or clarinet quartets, woodwind quintets, mixed trios, etc.

**Please note Continuing Education credits are available for band directors.

Sunday: meet and greet, faculty performance

Monday-Thursday
Middle School students (rising 6-8 graders) will have morning sessions from 9:00-1:30 with   lessons, workshops, group masterclasses and ensembles. Cost: to be determined.
