Junior Music: Beginning Band

Register Today

Beginning Band EDUcamp gives you a jump-start on the school year by exploring a brand-new instrument! Choose one instrument to focus on from the following list: trumpet, trombone, baritone, flute, clarinet, saxophone or percussion to start learning something new. Music and instruments will be provided. This camp is for those with NO prior experience on your chosen instrument.

At EDUcamp you’ll benefit from daily devotionals and Bible challenge sessions that will strengthen your faith and help you develop a strong biblical worldview. Camp instructors will demonstrate how you can glorify God by using each new skill.


  • Begin a new instrument through daily lessons, theory and beginning band rehearsals—all taught by BJU’s music faculty.
  • Enjoy musical games and special activities.
  • Go on a musical scavenger hunt.
  • Perform in a final concert for your family and friends.
  • Grow spiritually through devotions and Bible challenges.
