About:

Learn Mello Fast is a 3 day camp providing high schoolers an opportunity to get a head start on learning (or relearning) the Mellophone. The Mellophone is the instrument used in place of the French Horn during marching season of band. Many new freshman horn players find it difficult to transition over to a new instrument - and that's where we come in!

At this camp you will learn: 

  • Mellophone fingerings
  • Proper playing and rest positions
  • Effective articulation techniques
  • Memorization tips (crucial for marching season!)
  • Mouthpiece differences 
  • Care and maintenance of the instrument

IMPORTANT! BYOM

(Bring your own mellophone)

Make sure you get a hold of a mellophone for the camp.
We don't have any extras! (Your high school should provide one.)
