Saxophone Camp

The Ohio State University announced that all courses will be delivered through virtual modes of teaching and learning for the Summer 2020 term as we continue to respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Ohio State’s highest priority is the health and well-being of our community, and the university is following public health guidance in all decisions.

This university decision compels us to cancel all of our 2020 Youth Summer Music Program offerings. Please return to this site in January to see the full complement of YSMP offerings for Summer 2021.

If you have registered and paid for a 2020 program, we will be in touch with details of your pending refund.



We look forward to seeing you in Summer 2021.


This four-day experience provides high school saxophonists with diverse opportunities to develop as both classical and jazz musicians, engage with peers, and enjoy the college experience at Ohio State. Participants will work directly with saxophone professors Michael Rene Torres and Shawn Wallace in group activities, chamber ensembles, full saxophone ensemble and private lessons, and will benefit from additional instruction from current graduate and undergraduate saxophone students.
