Instrument Specific Brass Camps

Lone Star Trumpet Camp (Day Camp)

Recommended for incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th grade Trumpet Players.

June 19-23, 2017

Location: Coppell High School

Camp Tuition: $125, which includes camp t-shirt and daily snack

By attending Lone Star Trumpet Camp, young trumpet players fill one week of their summer with many hours of playing their instrument. In addition to strengthening their chops, they develop a greater understanding of the clarinet, hear a live professional performance, create a lasting memory by performing in a trumpet ensemble, and leave inspired to continue playing. The ability to play a musical instrument is a lifetime skill, and we are helping young trumpet players develop that skill so they can enjoy it forever.
