Learn an instrument, play in a band, for beginners.
No instrumental experience is necessary for our Rockstars 101 Beginners Camp! Throughout the week, students will try a variety of different instruments and settle on one or two that they are comfortable playing. Our skilled band directors will put together an awesome setlist of fun songs for our campers to learn, with the ultimate goal of performing for their parents and friends at the end of the week! Songs will range from pop to folk to classic rock and everything in-between! Playing in a band can help foster a love for music that most kids didn’t even know they had. All of our Rockstar 101 beginners campers will get the chance to try out drums, guitar, piano, bass, and singing!
Our Rockstar 101 Beginners Camp is available in two age groups: Ages 8-10, and Ages 11-13. No experience is required at all to participate!
WHAT A TYPICAL DAY OF ROCKSTAR 101 BEGINNERS CAMP LOOKS LIKE:
- 9:00 am – Morning Ice Breakers & Listening Sessions
Ice breakers are an important part of getting to know and building a bond with your fellow campers! Campers will get the chance to share some of their favorite music and even influence the setlist for the week!
- 10:00 am – Jam session
Our morning Jam session is relaxed and casual – it allows our campers to try out all sorts of different instruments while learning some basic skills on each one. Our band directors will help students figure out parts and use this jam session to assign instruments for the showcase at the end of the week.
- 11:00 am – Lessons & Skill Building
Campers will separate into small groups or will work solo at a private workstation. Each camper or small group will focus on an assigned instrumental task and skill for the day on the instrument that they selected during the morning jam session.
- Noon – Lunch break
- 1:00-3:30 pm – Setlist practice
Campers will apply their new skills to a band setting. The band director will spend time working on skills and parts with each camper so that everyone has fun. These afternoon sessions will ultimately culminate in a Friday performance for our parents and friends!
- 3:30-5:00 pm – Optional Aftercare
Our camps officially end at 3:30 pm, but for those parents who need it we provide optional aftercare until 5:00 pm for a fee. Your students will be able to continue practicing their instrument, or work at a private station and unwind from a long day.
