Camp Application

An unparalleled opportunity to improve your musicianship

Enrollment is non-competitive and FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED in order to enable a participant-to-faculty ratio of 4:1. This ensures that every participant has an unparalleled opportunity to improve their technique and musicianship.

KBHC offers great value to a wide range of adults, from professionals to serious amateurs to those picking up the horn for the first time in years. Participants will enjoy the ability to craft their ideal curriculum by choosing from classes targeted toward their specific goals and interests: reinvigorating an already high level of playing, diving deeply into a specific area such as natural horn or solo performance, working on fundamentals, and much more!
