All proficient instrumentalists or vocalists ages 10-17 are welcome to attend.

At the camp, students will be placed in their own rock band (from three to six members) based on their music taste/interest.

Then students will learn to operate, organize and create a functioning rock band in masterclasses, music workshops, and rehearsals, with a short concert for friends and family on the last day of the camp.

“This week-long summer camp gives students the experience of being in a rock band ensemble,” CSA Coordinator Dawn Martin Dickins said. “Each student will rehearse and perform in a rock band in addition to learning-related topics such as equipment handling, technique, and overall musicianship.”

Tyler Spuzzillo, a current APSU graduate student in music education, will teach the camp.

The camp costs $150.00 to attend. To register or find more information, visit this page.
