LISD and UISD students have the rest of the summer to recharge before hitting the books again in September. For those fortunate enough to have financial backing, they can partake in one of the numerous summer camps available. If you're lucky you can find a free one too.

Low brass students can get ahead of the competition by participating in the VMT Low Brass All State Preparation Camp beginning today.
The camp runs through June 30, and is free.
Taught by John Reimund, low brass instructor at the Vidal M. Trevino School of Communications and Fine Arts, the camp will run Mondays through Thursdays from 2 to 5 p.m.
A typical day will include breathing gym; pedagogy and warm up; sightreading and group lessons, using all state music examples; and private lessions.
"We’ll have a mock audition every Thursday," Reimund said.
"Come and be a part of the leanring and low brass fun, and really get prepared for the new Texas All State Band auditions."
For more information contact Reimund at 795-3325, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Earlier this year we featured two Nixon students that owed their success to Mr. John Reimund. LaSanbe hopes this summer camp produces more All-State band members next year.
