Marching Percussion Clinic - June 8 - 9, 2021

The focus of the Auburn University Marching Percussion Clinic is on developing and improving playing technique, listening skills, leadership skills, and enhancing the overall impact of the percussion section on a marching band performance. The Marching Percussion Clinic features instruction from Bret Kuhn, an internationally known marching percussion clinician, and is staffed by instructors from some of the finest programs in the southeast, as well as the directors of our very own AUMB. The program is open to percussionists who will be in the 7th through 12th grades in the upcoming school year and have had at least one year of instruction.

AU Summer Band Camps will follow Auburn University safety protocols to ensure the safety of our campers and staff, including social distancing and the use of masks while indoors. We will be in communication with registered campers regarding any changes in policy that may occur before the first day of camp. If a camp must be canceled for any reason, all fees will be refunded in full.
