KBHC is one of the best experiences any horn player can have.
Alumni of KBHC have positions in major symphony orchestras, military bands, and universities all around the globe. KBHC provides invaluable training for serious high school, college, and graduate students as well as providing a fulfilling experience for professionals, amateurs, and those just picking up the horn for the first time in many years.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
First-time high school students need to fill out an application and make a recording in order to be accepted into the camp. Returning High School students only need to fill out the application. Students graduating in 2019-2023 are eligible to apply.
The immersive experience of KBHC is the ideal space for serious college students. Campers work with renowned faculty in individualized and small group settings, and can delve deeply into orchestral excerpts, fundamentals, and solo work.
KBHC offers much to both serious professionals, amateurs, and those picking up the horn for the first time in years. Campers are divided into small groups dependent on their level, and each camper can determine the best use of their time at camp: reinvigorate your already high level of playing, to dive deeply into an area of playing such as natural horn or solo performance, or to work on fundamentals to improve your playing.
Our goal at Kendall Betts Horn Camp is to have the best possible horn experience in the world for all involved. Our teaching philosophy is to give every participant the opportunity to become the best musician they can be through proper instruction and dedicated support.
The faculty of KBHC includes the top players and teachers in the country and beyond. Campers work with these renowned soloists, members of top orchestras, and faculty of illustrious schools of music in individualized settings.
The staff at KBHC provides additional teaching, administrative, and technical support to allow an even greater personalized curriculum at KBHC. Many staff members are also KBHC alums and former students of Kendall Betts. They all are talented teachers and players, forging their own budding careers.
