Mini Camps

Summer Mini-Camp update: April 4, 2020

Given the state of public health, no plans have been made for 2020 percussion summer mini-camps. Any updates will be communicated to those who have filled out the percussion information form. In the meantime, feel free to contact Matt Groves with any questions about the repertoire. In addition, you are welcome to submit a video of yourself playing any of the material to MattRgroves@gmail.com if you would like to receive personalized feedback. Video submissions will not be factored into your placement audition on August 6, 2020.

 

There will be three highly recommended mini-camps for the entire percussion section (battery and front ensemble) on May 18 (Sat), June 15 (Sat) and July 13 (Sat) from 10 AM to 5 PM. These camps are not specifically required, but are recommended so that you can learn about playing style and ensemble development in the Georgia Tech Drumline. This gives the staff an opportunity to work with you before the final auditions at the beginning of band camp in August.

Please fill out this form to indicate your attendance at these camps: Be sure that you have filled out a Band Application prior to signing up for summer camps.

1. Fill out the Percussion Audition Form

2. Download the audition material for the section for you would like to audition. The link will be provided once the drumline information form is submitted.

3. Check your e-mail regularly for information regarding registration, camps, and auditions.

4. Practice!

This is a percussion only camp that happens 4 days prior to the full band camp.

A FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER:

  • We have an unusually large number of percussionists auditioning for a limited number of physical instruments in the battery.
  • The performance level of the drumline is very high. We take pride in being one of the finest college drumlines in the country.
  • We will evaluate your progress from camp to camp.
  • All members audition for their spot, including vets! Everyone must practice.
  • We will move people around instruments to find your best potential spot on the line.
  • Don’t hesitate to ask any questions between camps. The experience will be amazingly fun no matter what you play. Everyone that auditions will have the opportunity to participate in the Georgia Tech Band program either in the battery or the front ensemble and be assigned a part at Band Camp.
  • If for some reason you can’t make one of the two Summer percussion camps make sure you have the prepared music ready when you get to band camp August 6.
