Spirit U Educational Camps
Spirit of Atlanta is proud announce the debut of Spirit U – a brand new program for young marching musicians as well as band directors, boosters, and others seeking to grow in the world of marching music. The three-day summer “camp” will be June 22-24, 2017
Spirit U is designed to offer hands-on instruction on all instruments in marching bands, combined with courses on marching visual techniques and movement, and leadership and motivational classes that can help shape young performers into better members and student leaders of their school band programs. Directors and other adult classes will focus on operations and management of programs, dealing with health & fitness issues, using electronics in the modern band world, and other important topics to help directors and adult leaders make their programs better. The students will study and rehearse in close proximity to Spirit of Atlanta Drum & Bugle Corps, and at the conclusion of the camp they will join in a special performance as part of Spirit of Atlanta’s annual Preview Show. Spirit U is a fantastic way for young performers to gain up-close exposure to the techniques, skills, and practice methods of a World-Class DCI drum and bugle corps. For many, this could be a great way to take their passion for music and performing to a higher level.
