Summer band camps are a fun way to learn to play together and to get the experience of working out new songs in a group. Our half-day summer camps move quickly, so we practice a lot in the time we have, and by the end of a 5 day camp, we are ready to perform!
The bands each get to choose some of the songs they will learn, and they are taught how to work together favorably. One of the biggest challenges in a band is interpersonal relationships. By using clear language about respecting each others input and setting a tone of openness and safety, we encourage fair exchange of ideas and opinions. Maintaining good feelings and relations is a priority within the camp.
We play rock and pop songs from all eras. Here's some of what we have done in past summers. The Beatles, Steppenwolf, 54-40, Eric Clapton, The Doors, Mother Mother, Metric, Foo Fighters, Led Zepplin, The Wallflowers, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, The Strokes and a few Original pieces too!
We have groups for 11/12, 13/14, and 15/16 year olds.
Meet other kids your age who are into music and who play instruments different than yourself...you might meet your future band mates!
Summer should rock!
