The Watauga Arts Academy Music Program encompasses a wide array of opportunities for instrumentalists. Participants in the music program will work first-hand with world-renowned faculty through their participation in master classes, private lessons, and performance in small ensembles. Students will also attend a variety of music classes such as composition, music history and theory, beginning piano, jazz history and improvisation, and more. Students interested in studying voice are encouraged to apply for the Acting/Musical Theatre Program.
Unique to the Watauga Arts Academy is a daily interdisciplinary component where students will engage in creative activities with participants from other disciplines. In addition, students have the opportunity to attend various performances presented by Watauga faculty, guests, and fellow students, as well as participate in recreational activities and other camp events.
The music program is available for woodwind, brass, percussion, orchestral string, guitar, and piano. Students who are accepted into the Watauga Arts Academy Music Program will participate in a placement audition on the first day of the program. This audition is an evaluative tool used to properly place students into appropriate groups and classes.
