What is Rock'n'Roll Summer School?
Rock ‘n’ Roll Summer School is a summer day camp for kids and teenagers from all backgrounds ages 8-18. During the week-long day camp, youth of all skill levels will learn to play an instrument, form a band, write a song, and perform their original composition for family, friends, and lots of screaming fans!
In one week, campers form bands, write an original song and perform live at a music venue. Each day kicks off with punk-rock aerobics to get our bodies moving. Morning sessions consist of group instruction in the instrument each camper has been assigned for the week and a workshop. Workshops at camp may include designing and screen-printing camper band t-shirts, songwriting, self-defense, recording, and more! At lunch, a guest artist will take the stage to perform at our Tiny Lunch Concert, talk about their music, and take questions from campers. After lunch, campers have plenty of time to jam, write, and rehearse their band’s song. Prior music experience is not required. All instruments are provided.
Campers will be assigned one instrument to focus on for the week. Every day they will have a group lesson in that instrument, and play that instrument in their band. Applicants are asked to share their instrument preferences in the application. Their choices are: voice, guitar, bass, keys or drums. Not all campers will be assigned their first choice. Campers cannot change instruments once their instrument has been assigned.All instruments are provided. If a camper has their own guitar or bass, they may bring it. Good Times School of Music does not accept liability for personal instruments.
Camp will be $300 per student. This covers the entire cost of camp!
