Montana State University Billings

This premiere camp lead by internationally renowned vocalist Douglas Nagel is designed to better prepare middle and high school voice students to make a smooth transition into a collegiate music major.

Participation in this intense musical experience will expand your understanding and teach you the importance of vocal technique, voice lessons, song interpretation, body movement, music theory, aural perception and keyboard skills.  Every day you will have a one-on-one voice lesson with upper level MSUB voice majors.  And you will have at least one private lesson with Douglas Nagel.

You will be immersed in an environment with individuals who share your passion for beautiful music and performance, as you make new friends, challenge your own creative boundaries and learn from artists with years of vocal experience.
