The purpose of this case study was to examine the perspectives of three Black instrumental music students related to their experiences attending a predominantly white summer music camp for high school students in the United States. Analysed through a conceptual model of culturally responsive teaching in music, data sources included semi-structured interviews with individual participants, a focus group session with all participants, and researcher field notes. Participant stories revealed contrasting home and summer camp environments, racial identity development, and a desire for broader experiences beyond the European classical tradition. Findings explore a variety of barriers and supports for music learning for underserved student populations that may be transferable to similar high school music camp settings.
