Curriculum

Our mission at KBHC is to provide world-class instruction in all areas of the horn. Our curriculum affords campers the opportunity to immerse themselves in a variety of experiences. We offer elective courses in warm-up, fundamentals, orchestral excerpts/auditioning, improvisation/creativity, ear training, natural horn, solo performance, Alexander Technique, and yoga. Along with all of this in a given week, everyone will receive private lessons, a private Alexander Technique session, daily warm-up instruction, solo opportunities, horn choir, and the opportunity to perform on the final concerts. With our elective system, campers have the opportunity to tailor their experience to their desires. This ability to tailor the camp experience means that campers can come for different weeks and create a brand new camp experience for themselves each time they return. There is plenty of free time built into the daily schedule that gives campers the chance to explore the beautiful campgrounds. Campground activities include, but are not limited to hiking, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, tennis, and many other outdoor sports. We encourage all campers to take full advantage of the horn instruction and the leisure activities.
