Marching Leadership Camp - June 16 - 19, 2021

The Auburn University Marching Leadership Camp focuses on developing leadership, musicianship, and teaching skills; improving conducting skills for beginning and advanced drum majors; and enhancing individual student impact on their marching band program. The Marching Leadership Camp is staffed by professional leadership/conducting clinicians as well as the directors and student leaders of the Auburn University Marching Band.

The program is open to 9th -12th graders who are Drum Majors or Section Leaders, or who aspire to become Drum Majors or Section Leaders.

AU Summer Band Camps will follow Auburn University safety protocols to ensure the safety of our campers and staff, including social distancing and the use of masks while indoors. We will be in communication with registered campers regarding any changes in policy that may occur before the first day of camp. If a camp must be cancelled for any reason, all fees will be refunded in full.
