A week-long immersion into playing in a rock band, participants will experience hands-on instruction in being a member of a group. We will listen to and watch some of the most influential groups. A final performance under the tent will be the week’s goal. Campers will produce a professionally recorded CD of the material they have learned during camp!
This session is open to guitarists, drummers, bass or keyboard players, and any other instrumentalist interested in playing rock music.
Enjoy this recording from last year’s camp:
