INDIANAPOLIS – Central Indiana will again host the largest national weeklong summer music camp for students and teachers, June 21-28 at Ball State University in Muncie. Music for All, one of the nation’s largest and most influential organizations in support of music education, will return to Muncie for the fourth summer with its Music for All Summer Symposium, presented by Yamaha.

High school students learn from top music educators in tracks that include concert band, marching band, jazz band, orchestra, percussion, color guard and drum major.
