Color Guard Instructor Academy
The Color Guard Instructor Academy is perfect for color guard instructors at all points in their career. From the beginning instructor to the seasoned veteran who likes to stay current, the Color Guard Instructor Academy gives instructors the chance to STEP it up in the following areas: developing skills in both equipment and dance; enhancing and refining teaching techniques; exploring elements of design in choreography, equipment, and staging; and solidifying a professionalism that will benefit the instructors and their color guard programs.

What Should Your Child Bring?
June weather in Indiana is often unpredictable. Historical averages for this area range from 60°F-90°F and often include high humidity. Please keep that in mind when packing for camp.
Staying in Touch with your Student
The Music for All Headquarters staff is unable to receive and deliver messages to students by phone, unless an emergency requires immediately delivery. If you wish to speak with your child during the week, plan your calling schedule before your child leaves home.
Supervision and Health Info
Your child’s safety is our utmost priority. While at camp, your child is required to attend all classes, meals, concerts, and nightly floor meetings, where attendance is taken.
