Our music camps give middle and high school students new skills, new friends and new ways of thinking about music.
Think and do something different this summer by attending one of our middle school or high school music camps for a deep dive into electronic music or marching band conducting. All of our camps are guided by a team of highly qualified faculty, clinicians, and guest speakers, and provide a glimpse into what it’s like to attend NC State University.
Our day camps last five days and do not involve overnight stays, making them an affordable option for busy families.
2023 summer camps will run from June 12-16, 2023 and June 19-23, 2023. Registration will open on February 1, 2023. More information about 2023 summer camps will be available on the pages below soon, so stay tuned!
Not sure which electronic music camp to choose?
Our Intro to Electronic Music Camp is for students new to music software applications and/or music composition. You’ll learn how to compose a song using software, how to structure and use digital instruments and effects, how to use physical audio equipment as a foundation, and basic music theory.
If you’ve composed electronic music using software applications and have a music theory background, sign up for our Electronic Music Production Camp. You’ll dig into complex effects and mixing, creating sounds from scratch, and composing a score for a short film.
