Since its beginnings in 1979, Longhorn Music Camp (or LMC as it is affectionately known to its staff, faculty and campers) has provided an opportunity for thousands of young musicians from across Texas and the nation to experience the outstanding level of instruction offered at the Butler School of Music.  Offering programs for singers and instrumentalists at both the middle and high school levels, LMC seeks to create a positive musical and social environment that provides students the opportunity to learn from some of the finest music educators from across the state.

Supervised by Butler School of Music students and faculty, LMC students are taught each day by outstanding public school educators from around our state and by our own world-class faculty.  Instruction is offered in the morning and early afternoon, recreational time is provided in the late afternoon, and each evening features social and musical activities that allow students to further strengthen the friendships that have been fostered in the daily learning environment.  In most of our programs, students have the option of commuting each day or staying on campus, and the programs culminate in performances by the students at the end of their camp.
