The Rowan University Music Faculty is pleased to host the fifth annual sequence of specialized summer music camps in July 2016.
During the month of July, young musicians will have the opportunity to participate in comprehensive Band, Choral, Jazz, and String ensemble activities.
Each camp will engage students in full ensemble experiences, chamber music, and master classes, coupled with evening concerts by students and faculty. Students will participate in a variety of social events and experience the excitement of ‘university living’ in air conditioned accommodations on the beautiful Rowan campus.
We hope you will join us in 2016 for an enjoyable musical week!

The Rowan Summer Music Composition Camp offers students in grades seven through 12 a fun opportunity to learn and experience music composition. The camp is designed to expand the composer's toolbox by introducing compositional techniques, investigating orchestration and learning the skill of analysis. The Composition Camp runs at the same time as The Rowan Summer Band Camp and The Rowan Vocal Camp, allowing the Composition Camp two great resources to observe and learn from. Students will bring their primary instrument and will be composing and performing for each other. The Camp concludes on Thursday with students performing their pieces in a '90 Second Speed Concert' which is always a lot of fun for students, parents and audience!
The Rowan Composition Camp has a capped enrollment of 15 students. We have to honor paid registrations in the order they come in.
APPLY ONLINE! We have reached our enrollment cap for Summer 2016, so registration is now closed. Please consider joining us next summer for the Second Annual Composition Camp!
