Countdown to Camp!
Concerts & EventsMany things set the Music for All Summer Symposium apart, and one of those is the nightly concert series, one of our student campers’ favorite parts of the experience! Each evening features artists and groups presenting a variety of musical performance genres and provides immersive performance experiences for camper students.. The 2018 concert series includes these confirmed artists and events:
The Parent/Booster Institute
Providing the necessary tools to encourage parent/booster participation and to strengthen engagement in their child’s programs and community’s success are the goals of the Music for All Parent/Booster Institute.
The Parent/Booster Institute is coordinated by David Vandewalker, one of the nation’s leading scholars and advocates for modeling and empowering parent/booster program success.
Peer Teaching Program for Students!
The Peer Teaching Program is a dynamic student division at this year’s Music for All Summer Symposium. While leadership training is essential to the growth of our band programs, most times this training focuses on WHAT leadership is. This division has been designed to train students to BE real leaders in their programs.
Student Divisions at America's Camp
The Middle School Concert Band Camp offers a week-long, fun, immersive camp experience. Designed from the ground up with the middle school student in mind, students will grow as both musicians and individuals.
We've added a Music Production Boot Camp to the Music for All Summer Symposium! Chuck Ainlay, award-winning music producer and Yamaha Artist will be the recording engineer-in-residence.

The Directors' Academy
At Music for All, we know that the most influential element in the success of students and music education in general is qualified, knowledgeable, and well-prepared teachers. The Music for All Summer Symposium Directors’ and Instructors’ Academies are recognized as some of the finest and most comprehensive professional development experiences available. We strive to make them accessible to all directors!
Get on the Bus!
Music for All has developed routes from areas of the country with buses already scheduled to transport students to the Summer Symposium. There is limited room on these buses for students and directors to “Get on the Bus.”
