Join us for a 4 day workshop to give first year band and orchestra students a jump start on their instrument! In a small group setting, students will make their first sounds and go home with short, fun activities to play for homework. At the end of the week, students will leave knowing how to properly care for their instrument, the basics of good tone production, and how to be a successful music student!
