SIU Students Play trumpets
The School of Music at SIU provides numerous camps available to students each summer, as well as year round festivals drawing musicians from all styles and instrumentation. Check out what we have coming up this year!

Summer Music Camp

Students can choose from focused tracks of High School Band, Junior High Band, Jazz Improv, Color Guard, Drum Major and Marching Percussion.

Join dozens of fellow musicians in grades 7 to 12 from across the United States at the music camp that has served as a model for similar programs nationwide: the Southern Illinois University Summer Music Camp. Refine your musical skills during daily rehearsals, master classes and concerts.
