Summer 2016 Music Camps
There are still openings for this years jamBand camps. All jamBand camps are child-centered, fun experiences in learning to play basic pop music by ear in an ensemble situation. We learn groove, intros, solos, vocals, harmonies, vocals, stage cues and teamwork. We want guitarists, bassists, drummers and keyboard players. Other instruments will be considered on an individual basis. An audition is necessary.
June 20-24 - Ultimate jamBand Camp is for 13 to 18 year-olds with a focus on learning lots of tunes. We will play student-chosen songs across genres. We will bring in guest teachers to work on specific techniques. At the end of the week we will have a concert production and invite the public.
June 27- July 1st - Songwriting jamBand Camp will involve playing lots of songs, but we’ll have a focus on writing and developing songs, start-to-performance. Guest songwriters will visit and offer tips. Students will perform at pubic concert at the end of the camp week.
July 25 - July 29 - Young Rockers Camp is for ages 10 – 13, and will focus on the fundamentals of playing rock music in a band. We cover the basics of making music with others by doing it. Guest musicians visit and offer tips for becoming better players. Simple rock, blues, R&B and country tunes are studied, played and performed in concert at the week’s end.
