The most successful camper will be
Dedicated to his/her craft, eager to learn, willing to try new things, stay on task, and rock on every day!
Play pop songs, some chosen by the instructor, more chosen by students!*
Each day we will harness these skills and more to build confidence and open you to a new world of possibilities of what is possible for what can be done in music and what you can achieve.
Everyone's hard work will culminate on Thursday with a performance and reception for the families.
*We want to make this camp exciting everyday. About a month before camp begins we will reach out to the students to get to know you, your musician character, and the songs you want to learn and perform. We will compile a list of the student’s songs they want to learn and decide together which songs will be included in our camp’s set list!
