Dear Parents,
Summer is right around the corner! It has been a very successful and productive year for the Auburn-Washburn Music Department. None of this could have possible without your tireless hard work and support. You do more for our program than you will ever know. Without you, there would be no program!
We are sure some of you participated in the Auburn-Washburn Summer Band Program last year. It was a great success and there was much involvement from students of all of our schools. If you did not participate, DON'T WORRY, you will be able to do so this year! With that being said, it is time to begin enrolling in Summer Band! You do not want to miss this!!!!!!!!!
What is in it for your student? A great, musical experience, surrounded by peers ranging from 6th-12th grade. This is a great camp because it helps instill confidence in our young performers by getting to perform with high school students and also is a great opportunity for those older students to serve as role models for the younger ones. The group will be led by Mr. Chris Exum and Mr. Weston Cook while they work on 4 pieces of band literature over the course of a 4-day camp. New this year will be the Summer Drum Circle, which last from 10:30am - 12:00pm. This will allow your percussion student a first hand experience at learning percussion techniques and music from our resident percussionist Mr. Exum. Any percussion student who partakes with have $15 waved from their registration!! The camp will culminate with the Friday evening concert where the students showcase all of their hard work over the course of the week.
This is a great opportunity for your student to continue progressing in their musical abilities in the summer. We know how summer can be for students and we want to offer as many opportunities to perform as possible. 

This is a GREAT resource for you all! College professors demonstrating and giving small master-classes on your audition excerpts. Study up!
