2018 Rock Bands Camp

2018 Rock Bands Camp 

Our Rock Bands Summer Camp is the perfect place for your child to excel at playing an instrument or singing. Each student is placed in a band directed by one of our world-class faculty members. Throughout the week, students learn songs, vocal and instrumental technique, workshop with professional musicians, and prepare for a Friday concert.

Unlike other band camps, ours focuses on helping the students grow as musicians, and not just learning songs by rote. Our instructors all hold advanced degrees in music, and have many years of teaching and performing under their belts. See below for details, and please give us a call at 516-292-2777 if you have any questions. A PDF registration form can be downloaded by clicking the link below.
