2018 Saxophone Academy Austin Summer Camp!
TRIPLE THE FUN!!!
Did you have an AWESOME year of saxophone playing in 2017-18 and you want to keep making music?
Are you looking for a way to stay excited about playing the saxophone over the summer?
How about having the chance to spend a week with some of the BEST teachers in Austin and San Antonio (we think they're some of the best teachers in Texas too...), AND hang out with your friends at the same time?
Do you want to make NEW friends who are also saxo-stars?!
Saxophone Academy Austin is extremely excited to announce its fourth year of saxophone-only summer camps!
Open to students 12th grade and under with a minimum of one year of playing experience, the Saxophone Academy Austin Summer Camp is an exciting and enjoyable way to meet fellow saxophonists in the area, play in ensembles you wouldn't get a chance to play in during school, work with a team of highly trained, exuberant young teachers AND continue playing saxophone through the summer break!
Please send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
All camps run from 9:30am to 12:30pm each day with a concert on the final day.
In 2018, we have THREE camps for you to choose from (one being VERY specially tied to UT Austin!):
NORTH AUSTIN - June 18-22 - Four Points Middle School
CENTRAL AUSTIN - June 10-16 - Longhorn Music Camp!
SAN ANTONIO - June 11 - 15 Ronald Reagan High School
Each day, campers will participate in musical games, lessons, ensembles, masterclasses and large group activities designed to make you a better saxophonist and to have fun with music.
All campers who attend will receive a bunch of exciting things to take home, including an exclusive Saxophone Academy Austin t-shirt!
What is camp all about?!
We have one major rule at camp (aside from the obvious one about safety and respect).
Have fun making awesome music
Our main goal at SAA is to have fun making music with our saxophones. Each year, we hand select some of the BEST saxophone teachers from all over central Texas and deliver them to YOU for the WHOLE CAMP week.
These teachers know a thing or two about the saxophone, but they also know just how much fun making music can be.
Each day, you get to work with each of these teachers in their special electives, group lessons and ensemble rehearsals, and they will tell you all about how to get even better on your instrument.
You will be grouped into your camp "family" - which is usually made up of other saxophonists around your age and ability and in this group, you will get to play chamber music and learn special topics in saxophone awesomeness from the teachers.
Ever wondered where you fit into the saxophone's family tree? Or perhaps you want to know how to make some crazy sounds on your saxophone? You will learn it all!
At the end of the camp, we put on a concert for your family and friends to attend to showcase all the things you learned from your time at SAA.
Also, we HAVE A LOT OF FUN!!
One of our students last year told us that camp was "more fun than the emails made it sound", which we think is pretty accurate! We are musicians who love to have fun playing our instruments and thats exactly what we want for our students too! (We just aren't the best at putting it into words).
This year's all-star faculty include:
Elizabeth Rosinbum - D'Addario Woodwinds Clinician, Private Saxophone teacher
Jessica Voigt-Page - D'Addario Performing Artist, Private Saxophone teacher
