The Marching Band Division at the Music for All Summer Symposium offers students inspiring experiences! Ideal for section leaders; innovative, current, and relevant information on music and marching fundamentals are taught by staff from some of the best high school bands in America. The curriculum is challenging for all levels. The marching band track teaches more than just marching techniques and music; students learn the basic principals of dance and body movement. They learn how to communicate with section-mates, how to read drill charts, and clean drill. We are laser-focused on fundamentals and the development of the individual, both musically and visually. Students learn skills that are applicable to all band programs and we encourage them to take these skills back to their own bands to grow in a positive direction.

What are students saying about Marching Band at America’s Camp?
Unforgettable opportunity to perform with Carolina Crown!
Everything you do to make this camp fun, exciting, and safe is amazing!
I’ve already recommended this camp to many other people and cant wait to be back next year.
Music for All’s parent/booster training and advocacy programs and resources are key elements in Music for All’s vision to be a catalyst to ensure that every child across America has the opportunity and access to participate in music making in his or her scholastic environment.
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.
