Chosen with the student’s preferences in mind, every Hamp's Camper will participate in two different large ensembles, one chamber ensemble, and the Hamp’s Camp Ensemble. Each of these ensembles will be coached by our faculty and staff members. These ensembles can be from multiple concentrations — for example, a student could choose to perform in concert band, jazz ensemble, and an a cappella group — and our schedule is setup to accommodate a student with a variety of interests. If a pre-formed chamber ensemble plans to attend, please inquire to the camp email about receiving a discount on camp tuition.
Pianists at the Lionel Hampton Music Camp will not only have the opportunity to perform in a variety of ensembles, such as piano trios, jazz ensembles, choirs, and the Hamp’s Camp Combined Ensemble, but their schedule also allows ample time for private studies and masterclasses with the piano faculty from Lionel Hampton School of Music.
Piano faculty at the University of Idaho will be giving private lessons, piano chamber groups, and masterclasses. The faculty includes Rajung Yang, Roger McVey, Jovanni de Pedro and Kate Skinner.
