Camps and Clinics

Camps and Clinics for students and directors are available at Tarleton. We believe in a first-class setting to give high school students and their directors an educational and entertaining clinic/camp experience that they will remember. Please explore some of our offerings below.

Brass Day

Brass Day gives high school and college students the opportunity to collaborate in a concentrated environment that allows for advanced study on trumpet, French horn, trombone, euphonium, or tuba. Master classes and other creative environments assist in a positive experience for all brass musicians.

Invitational Band Festival

Each year, a guest composer is invited to the Tarleton campus to work with the students involved with the music program and with band programs throughout the State of Texas who participate in the festival. While each composer brings similar professional practices, every experience can differ from year to year. After each band’s concert presentation, the guest composer will give a clinic on stage. This experience brings each student’s music making to life and gives the performer the opportunity to experience a composers intentions and interpretation.

In addition to the guest composer, a panel of adjudicators will offer pre-festival audio and written comments. In this regard, the Invitational also serves as preparation for the UIL Concert and Sight Reading Festival.
