Why choose Cannon Music Camp?

When you attend our summer camp you will grow musically.

You will meet other campers and faculty who will push you to discover yourself and your talents.

While on campus you will experience the Hayes School of Music faculty and staff and the campus of Appalachian State University.

This is a great time to learn about your direction for college. You can talk to our faculty and staff and explore what you want in a college/university. Stop by our Dean's office and get assistance with the process of applying or visit our website for "Prospective Students". We also offer a program called  "Student for a Day" , this is for high school juniors and seniors who will visit our school and get immersed in our classes and programs.

The time at camp will consist of practicing, studying, fun and meeting 190 other campers who share your love of music. It is a time to find out what direction you will take with your music. This summer our Women's Choir learned to push themselves. Wow, what a fantastic Finale Performance Dr. Linda Larson conducted, at the end of the performance the audience found out that nearly 1/2 of the singers had never sang publicly before. By challenging yourself you can reach heights you never knew you had.

The most important thing to do for yourself is to PRACTICE, STUDY and PREPARE for your Ensemble Placement Audition and get ready for your 3 weeks of great musical advancement.

You will come away with the skills to help you advance in your schools music program, state competition or prepare you for your college music program.

Another great tidbit, our counselors are not just the typical camp counselor, they are music educators and music students. They teach at local schools and colleges in North Carolina, they are graduate students and music majors at Appalachian State University. They assist the faculty based on their performance area. Each faculty member is assigned a counselor to assist with the daily practicing, ensembles and Finale Performances. They will be your dorm counselor, your music counselor and your mentor. Cannon Music is unique that most of the counselors attended Cannon Music Camp as a camper, just like yourself.
