Frequently Asked Questions
What is our Mission?
KSU’s Summer Music mission is to inspire technical, creative, artistic, and conceptual musical growth through both collaborative and instrument-specific engagement and instruction led by the renown faculty of the KSU School of Music.
How are we unique?
We are a unique musical experience that ties the days together with overarching musical concepts. By adopting a universal concept each day and using that as a guiding principle, we will help to shape the focus of the end of day group activity while still being able to address instrument/area specific needs during the day. Each day, our participants will be immersed in these musical concepts, and this will be reinforced with a variety of fun classes, big group activities, collaborative music making, and a daily culminating activity that incorporates overarching musical concepts.
How are we better?
• Overarching musical concept organization.
• Both collaborative and instrument-specific instruction.
• Technical, musical, creative, theoretical, AND conceptual instruction.
• Excellence and expertise of KSU School of Music Faculty.
• Renowned Morgan Concert Hall in the Bailey Performance Center.
• The KSU experience is new and unlike other camps in the area.
• Experience at KSU will be different than the traditional approach to summer camp.
• Our schedule, facilities, and faculty provide us a unique advantage to be able to explore musical ideas in a deep, thoughtful, and fun way each day.
