Summer Music Camp 2015

This summer, the Music Academy is presenting the 7th Battle of the Bands. Here is some information on this dynamic weeklong day camp for kids age 9-17:


What is Battle of the Bands?

Battle of the Bands is a one week summer day camp open to kids of all abilities ages 9-17. All enrolled campers are placed into a rock band with students of a similar age and ability, and each band is facilitated by one of the Music Academy’s world-class instructors. Each band rehearses daily in preparation for a Friday night concert, where the bands compete to win the title of “Best Band of 2015.” The winning band members also receive iTunes gift cards.

What activities are offered at the camp?

Our camp is much more than just a daily band rehearsal and concert. Throughout the week, campers learn not only how to play their instrument, but also work on stage presence, music theory, improvisation, song writing, arranging, studio recording techniques, and more. In addition, professional musicians are brought in throughout the week to discuss topics like using guitar pedals, recording with Garage Band, vocal techniques, and improvising for rock musicians.
