Band Camp makes students and parents smile

Apex Middle School just conducted a very successful Mini-Camp for rising sixth graders.  A great time was had by all.  Many, many thanks to our principal Dr. Hedrick, our director Mrs. Bishop, the intrepid guest instructors Susan Fritts and Christina Thompson, high school helper Caroline Galdi, and of course our wonderful students!  They exhibited new-found skill and confidence with their instruments at our end-of-camp concert.A very special thanks goes to the Peak Fest Commission for their generous grant to help us get started!  We hope that this will become an annual event for our band students here at Apex Middle.  

We'd like to thank Susan Fritts, our flute and clarinet instructor this week at our 6th grade mini-camp!  Susan teaches at St. Timothy school and gives private instruction to many flute players in the area.  You can learn more about her at

Our mini-camp wouldn't have been complete without the skills of Christina Thompson, our trumpet and trombone instructor.  Christina teaches music classes at Wiley and Lead Mine elementary schools, and also gives private instruction.  There are many more details at .

Thank you again to all!
