JUMP Camp for Girls

From Dr. Elizabeth Janzen at Texas A&M/Kingsville:

Attached you will find a brochure and application for this exciting program that began last year at TAMUK for Rising Senior High School girls (students that are currently in their junior year in high school).  The program is called JUMP--Javelina Upbeat Musical Program.

The music department has again received a grant for a week-long summer program to assist young women who are considering majoring in music in college.  The idea behind the program is to give them a sample week of life as a college music major and to give them a headstart into the college audition and application process.

The students will receive a private lesson; chamber music coachings; daily music theory and piano classes; lectures on performance anxiety, stage presence, audition techniques, scholarship audition processes and more.  There will be nightly social activities as well.

Students will be housed on the campus and will eat all of their meals together.  Due to the grant we received, this program that would cost approximately $500 per student now costs only $50 per student.  This includes everything--private lesson with the applied music faculty, room/board and tuition for the program.  The will receive a t-shirt as well at the end of the week.  : )

The dates for the program are June 9-14, with the program culminating in an evening recital on Friday, June 14.

The program is limited to 24 students and will include 12 band and 12 vocal students.  This low number will ensure individualized attention.

If you have a student that would be a fit for the program, please let me know as soon as possible by email.  I will then reserve a spot for the student(s) and they can then mail in the application.  A waiting list for students will be started as well, once the initial spots are filled. I will hold initial spots that are reserved until March 8.  After that, if I have not received the registration fee and application I will re-open the spot to students on the waiting list.  Since the cost is so low and the impact of the program is so high, these spots will go extraordinarily fast!
