Florida Band Incubator (FBI) at Mike Block String Camp
Monday, July 10 – Friday, July 14, 2017

Arrival is on July 9th, and Departure is on July 15th.

The Florida Band Incubator (FBI) is a 5-day workshop designed to foster the artistic and professional growth of young bands preparing for active touring careers. Pre-formed bands are coached and mentored by world-class string faculty from the Mike Block String Camp Extension, as well as engaging with other bands participating in the FBI through workshops, masterclasses, and business seminars.

If you are in a musical group containing at least one bowed/picked string player that is working towards building a successful professional band by making recordings, booking shows, and/or making music videos, then the FBI will help you get to the next level – both artistically, and professionally.
