There are now 3 divisions at Bocal Majority:

  1. Regular
  2. Premier
  3. ADRIT (Advanced Double Reed Institute of Texas)

Regular division is appropriate for all ability levels – groups are determined by audition the first day of camp

Premier division is the highest level group at camp besides ADRIT. Work with a special, high-level instructor (often college professors). Enrollment is limited, no audition necessary. Cost slightly higher than regular.

Is Premier Division right for my student?

High-level student

Very serious about their playing / practices frequently

Aspirations of being accepted into the ADRIT program in the future

ADRIT division is only at select locations (Austin 1, Frisco, Southern California, Ohio, Houston North, Virginia). By audition only (March 1 deadline), upper level high school and college students. Get to work with extremely high-level faculty and professionals from all over the nation.
