Mansfield University... Developing Tomorrow's Leaders Music Camps

Flute Camp

2014 Flute Camp Intensive with Dr. Christine Moulton!

Campers participate in several intensive days of flute study, from Tuesday evening to Saturday morning. The camp culminates in a demonstration performance for parents, family and friends on Saturday, 11:00 a.m.  

Core topics include:

  • Warm-ups with an eye and an ear toward great tone and intonation. Bring one of your favorite tunes for tone exercises (have one in mind, or use one of ours!)
  • Articulation wonderland: clear note beginnings and double tonguing insights
  • Vibrato (Yes, you can!)
  • Effective breathing
  • Mental focusing techniques AND…
  • A fun way to improve your rhythm FAST!

The camp is open to junior high school and high school age flute players. All participants will receive individual instruction as well as small group instruction. Campers will be grouped according to age and ability and will spend several hours each day in chamber music rehearsals, as well as spend time working with faculty and staff coaches.

Placement Auditions will be held during check-in on Tuesday, July 8, 2014. All campers should be prepared to play a variety of scales and an etude or solo of their choice. Campers should also expect to sight-read a selection that will be made available at the audition. 

Camp Staff:

The camp faculty is comprised primarily of the Mansfield University Music Department and is augmented by individuals in the music field who are outstanding players and teachers. Camp counselors are selected Mansfield University alumni and music majors and will also serve as teaching staff by helping to coach master classes and chamber ensembles. The counselor to camper ratio is 1:10. Campers and counselors live in the campus residence hall and eat in the campus cafeteria.
