Summer Band Academy

The brand new Summer Band Academy is open to band students with a minimum of 2 years experience with their instrument. The program is held at Newington High School. The primary focus of this academy is to challenge the middle school and young high school student to perform at a higher level not only through participation in large ensembles, but also through student-directed and director-coached sectionals, mini-lessons, and small ensembles. 

The Summer Band Academy is intended to be an intensive two-week program. While students have the option to sign up for one week, the program moves progressively over a two-week period. Therefore, it is highly recommended that students register for both weeks in order to get the most out of the experience.

Registration for the Summer Band Academy will be open during summer registration in early May!
