As of April 5th, Flute Camp is scheduled to run as planned. However, I will be watching the reports and suggestions from the CDC. Along with the Chelmsford Center for the Arts, we will make a decision about summer camp that is in the best interests of all involved.
Flute Camp 2020 will be held from July 6-10 . This summer program is designed for flutists who want to improve their playing, meet fellow flute players, experience what it is like to play in a flute choir/ensemble, and have a great time while making music! This summer should feature some guest appearances and a trial of some wonderful, high-end, handmade instruments! The camp meets at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts.
Monday-Friday, 10:00AM - 12:00PM
This session is for students with at least one year of training, have played in beginning band for a year and/or have started private lessons to begin instruction if they have not started in school yet. Rhythms are simple for younger students, allowing each flutist to feel confident in playing their part with support from a section. We will focus on basic scales, healthy warm-ups, hand/body position, sound production, and is an introduction to playing together as a chamber ensemble. For older students (7th-12th grade), part assignments are more complicated and students will be challenged to perform independent parts. We will focus on major/minor scales, warm-ups, anatomical awareness, cueing, vibrato, expression, extended techniques, and will further advance chamber ensemble playing.

TUITION: The tuition for the camp is $160 per flutist and includes a free camp shirt! Any questions can be directed to Allison Lacasse at firstname.lastname@example.org.
