Music for All Summer Symposium is an experience that you and your students don’t want to miss, and we need your help to make that happen!

How can YOU talk about camp in your classroom?

There’s something for every student at Summer Symposium! YOU are the most important influence in encouraging your students to attend camp. And the more your students attend camp, the greater the impact they will have on your program. Below are some tools for talking about the benefits of camp with your students. Take a few minutes in class this month to be a partner in our mission to “create, provide, and expand positively life-changing experiences through music.”

1. Show the Summer Symposium Video

Play this 60 second video in class to show you students what the camp experience is all about.

2. Add Camp to Your Band’s Calendar

Mark it on your calendar as “optional” so students and parents know it is not required, but encouraged. By adding Summer Symposium to your official band calendar, you will help spark conversations about attending camp between parents and students.

3. Zoom Info Sessions

Want more info? Set up a Zoom call with Music for All’s Director of Camps, Jeff Young! Jeff is happy to virtually meet with your students and/or virtually attend your parent booster meeting. Email camp coordinator, Bailey at to schedule a call.

4. Share With Parents!

Make sure to include these resources in your parent communications this Spring so their students don’t miss out on this positively life-changing experience!

5. Print Out and Display our Camp Poster in the Band Room
