The Cor Dallas Horn Camp provides a wholesome experience packed with musical creativity, horn education, and new experiences! Our unique programs promote the development of self-esteem, independence, and responsibility for all campers.
Located in the DFW Metroplex of Texas, the Cor Dallas Horn Quartet was founded in 2019, and the camp began in July 2020. Our Music Camp welcomes campers who are ready to engage in a meaningful experience nearby, but, away from home for the mornings.
We offer a wide variety of programs and activities, with top-of-the-line facilities and qualified staff who are committed to the enjoyment and safety of all our campers. Join us to create your own memories. You’re invited to find out for yourself why so many campers are interested in the Cor Dallas Horn Camp this year!
Experiences that are new to students!
Students will be placed into an ensemble (and a mass horn choir ensemble!) which will allow them to not only meet other horn players, but to be coached by a different teacher than they're accustomed to. To learn in a different way, and to learn from the new people around them.
Learning from teachers they've never worked with before!
From embouchure building, to high register exercises & ideas, to lip trills, as well as simply creating a beautiful horn sound. Learning the history of the horn, more about equipment, and the "why" behind these items' characteristics!
Uniqueness - Learning materials that build them as horn players!
Each day, we will begin with a different topic - this is a surprise each day, but, is a topic that is a commonly difficult topic to master! This may be the element of forming an ensemble, how important the warmup is, what specific warmups the pros do, and even simply being respectful to one another as musicians in the professional world.
Our camp opens up the doors to horn players that typically seem locked shut -- that seem unanswerable. Our camp is to allow students to the see the growth they can have in a week of summertime, verses the idleness that most students experience during their summer practice routines. As experienced horn players & teachers, we will provide your campers with the most wisdom on the horn, as we have learned and lived during our own journeys of becoming our best horn player. Guests will also be asked to teach at camp, who are national leaders in the horn education world.
