***Applicants must be at least 8 years old by the beginning date of camp (7/29/2019) to be considered***
The program offers instrument instruction, songwriting/band practice, live performances by visiting artists/DJs, and workshops. The week culminates in a showcase concert. Campers receive 1.5 hours of instruction each day on selected instruments (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, vocals), in semi-private groups organized by skill level and age. Campers are organized into bands and write music and lyrics collectively, assisted by band coaches. Every day of camp, we have a DJ/Band lunch hour, giving campers the opportunity to watch a performance while they have lunch. After the DJ/Band finishes their set, there is a Q&A with the artist. Campers gain first-hand exposure to professional musicians through performances and workshops with a variety of topics. At the end of the week, camper bands perform their original songs at a showcase concert at a local music venue.
***Camp will be held from Monday, July 29th – Friday, August 2nd, with a grand finale concert on Sunday, August 4th.***
HOURS: Monday-Friday 9am-5pm (drop off 8:30-9am and pick up 5-5:30pm). Sunday’s Final Concert will take place at TBA
