Rock N Roll Summer Boot Camp for Kids

Two-Week Rock ‘N’ Roll Summer Boot Camp for Absolute Beginners

July 11th – July 21st, Mon-Thu plus show on evening of final day

Two weeks that could change your life forever! So you are ready to be a rock star…but you are a complete beginner? No Problem! In only two weeks you will know the basics of playing guitar! It will take a lot of work, but you’ll be in a small group with lots of positive coaching, surrounded by music and musicians. You WILL learn the basics of guitar playing!

During this intensive two-week program, you’ll rock out with others under the patient and expert guidance of an experienced instructor. You’ll learn the basics of chords, strumming, and reading tablature in the context of carefully selected riffs and songs such as “Smoke On the Water”, “Song 2”, “Seven Nation Army”, “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and more. You’ll also visit a working guitar repair shop, learn to listen to music like a professional musician, check out the advanced rock bands (and be inspired!). At the end of your boot camp, your group will perform a song in the Summer Rock Band Show! Of course, your friends and family are invited to see your rock star moment, and we’ll videotape your show and post it on YouTube, too, so that you can share it with all your friends.
