Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, we have revamped our 2020 High School Band and J-Settes Camp. The band camp will continue as a virtual band camp experience for ALL. We must continue to practice social distancing and avoid social gatherings to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
This will be a three (3) day FREE Band Camp virtually using Zoom; camp participants will be required to sign up for their desired sessions on the “Sonic Boom of the South” website. Students will be allowed to sign up for more than one session. The camp will be led by members of the JSU Band Staff and our wonderful Student Leaders in the band program ranging from Drum Majors, Prancing J-Settes, and Section Leaders.
The purpose of the virtual camp is to continuously engage ALL musicians (alumni, fans, supporters, prospective/current students) in musical approaches, marching and dance fundamentals. These are skills that will help all develop and maintain musical growth, physical fitness and leadership skills that can be utilized in band programs. Each day will be filled with various sessions to hone in specific areas to assist in various musical and dance techniques. There will also be a special topics course each day. The Jackson State University Band program is committed to elevating the skills and knowledge that will help the music prowess of all generations.
