6th Grade Switch Camp
Tues-Fri, June 5-8, 2018
Union 6/7th Grade Center Band Room
This camp is for first year flute & clarinet students who will be switching over to either oboe, bassoon, alto saxophone, or tenor saxophone; and for first year brass students switching to French Horn. We will take you step by step through the process of learning your new instrument, so this event is REQUIRED for students switching instruments.

Oboe & Bassoon: a school-provided instrument, startup supplies, and method book will be provided and ready for participating students on the first day of camp.
Saxophone: you will need to have your instrument rented or purchased BEFORE the 1st day of camp so that you can get started right away. The only acceptable saxophones are Yamaha Student Models. If you already have a saxophone, please consult your teacher to make sure it is of acceptable quality and condition. You’ll need a few 2.5 strength VanDoren reeds (blue box), a neck strap, a mouthpiece (Rousseau Classic 68), & a ligature (Rovner). A method book will be provided to each student at no cost.
French Horn: a school-provided instrument, startup supplies, and method book will be provided and ready for participating students on the first day of camp.
