UGA Summer Music Camp 

June 2-6, 2024

University of Georgia Summer Music Camp is an intensive five-day musical experience that offers students a place to grow musically in a fun and exciting learning environment. Summer Music Campers attend academic classes that address important areas of musicianship. Campers also attend instrument-specific masterclasses under the direction of the acclaimed faculty of UGA's Hugh Hodgson School of Music. Band, orchestra, and chorus students rehearse and perform in the appropriate large ensembles, while piano students focus on performance practice and the standard literature of their instrument. In addition, Summer Music Campers have ample opportunity to socialize, develop relationships with other young musicians, and experience life on a great university campus.  Concentrations include orchestra, band, chorus, piano, and jazz band (HS only). No audition is required for admission. The UGA Summer Music Camp is open to students in grades 6-12.
