Flute Camp

Flute Camp

July 13 - 18, 2014

The UW-Whitewater Flute Camp provides flutists (entering 8th grade through those graduating from high school) an opportunity to grow musically and to hear and learn a new repertoire. The daily schedule challenges the student at his or her own personal level. In addition to two daily lessons, flute quartet and warm-up sessions, campers enroll in two or more of the class offerings. On the last two days of the camp, private flute lessons are joined by professional accompanists.

Enrollement: First 60 applicants.
