Yellow Springs Summer Music Camp (YSSMC)
Strings, Winds, Percussion, Chamber Music, Theory and Conducting
Our faculty is highly experienced; passionate about their art and actively strives to motivate and share with their students the joy of achievement in making music.
Shirley Mullins started YSSMC over 50 years ago. Shirley is one of the most respected music educators in the country having conducted honor ensembles throughout Ohio and the Midwest. Shirley has been a sought after speaker, clinician, writer, editor and conductor. With all that, Shirley is deeply loved and respected by her students.
This year's camp will have some important (but hopefully temporary) changes due to Covid. We'll skip large ensemble rehearsals this summer to allow for a safer experience and focus on smaller, chamber group rehearsals; always an important element the kids really enjoyed in the past. We will be following local, state and federal mandates for the safety of our campers. Camp will also include: * A private one on one lesson for your own instrument each week * Sectionals with like instruments * Master classes where quality lessons and more advanced techniques are demonstrated *
The 2022 camp will be a musical immersion experience as always in Yellow Springs. Camp usually runs one or two weeks in June or July from 10:30am til 2:30pm. Please check back in late winter/ early spring for exact dates and then register early! Along with the registration form we'll need the Medical/Media release form filled out before campers start camp. There is also a Camp Info Sheet with helpful information about camp. Links to those three forms as well as a camp brochure from this summer's camp can be found below (the forms will update to 2022 in the spring):
Guest clinicians * Tons of music *Music Theory and Conducting sessions * Student recitals * Fun!
