CONCEPT: Crash Course in Rock ‘n’ Roll is a 2-week intensive rock camp designed to provide interaction between young musicians in a real-life band situation. Campers will work together as a band, choose a band name, select and arrange songs, write music, and learn how to promote their group. The experience will culminate with a live concert performance for friends and family to see what the future of Rock ‘n’ Roll looks and sounds like!
CAMPERS: Camp is open to students of guitar (acoustic and electric), bass, drums, keyboard, and voice ages 12-16. Participants should have prior experience playing their instruments (understand the basics and have the ability to perform complete songs). You DO NOT need to be enrolled in weekly lessons at Music & Rock School to participate.
