NORTHLAND YOUTH MUSIC PROGRAM "the best kept secret in the Northland" a 501c3 program
a nonprofit 501c3 youth band program
2003 week two concert band camp
The Northland Youth Music Program started in 1999 as the Duluth/Superior Area Youth Wind Band Program. The program was conceived by a group of parents and interested citizens who recognized the need for an affordable high quality band program for students in 7th through 12th grade.
The N.Y.M.P. provides students participating in a school band or orchestra program (students in alternative schooling welcome) a high quality affordable extracurricular music opportunities.
A special note to parents, teachers and students:
The Northland Youth Music Program summer camp is interested in giving students an opportunity to enjoy playing music and meeting new friends. N.Y.M.P. has in the past had many parents call concerned they can not afford to send their child or multiple children from one family to a band camp program including our camp. Callers voiced concern that the tuition grant would not be available to their child. Like every other program we too have to pay our bills, which include the music educators who have joined up with the N.Y.M.P. special guest artists, and of course the other expenses which are created to run such a program. With this said our number one goal is the growth and nurturing of our young musicians. No student will be turned away from our camp because of inability to pay tuition. Please contact me Adam Schanz with any questions and I will be glad to work with you to make sure your son or daughter attends the 2004 camps!

your opinion counts!
N.Y.M.P. has been asked to start a choir camp in 2004. We are looking at the feasibility and will make our decision at the end of January. At this time we are looking at holding the camp during week two July 20, 2004. The camp would concentrate on concert, jazz and gospel choir. If anyone has feedback on the proposed camp please contact me before the end January.
Marc Reese Trumpeter from the EMPIRE BRASS will be returning for the two week concert camp in 2004.
Thanks to Janna, Katey and Liz for playing at the Salvation Army kettle concert
