SONGWRITING CAMP

If you play an instrument (yes, that includes your own voice!), have always wanted to write your own music, but don't know where to start, this is the camp for you!

EVERYONE CAN SING! VOICE CAMP

Is your brother constantly telling you to stop singing because you sound like a dying cat? Or Aunt Millie keeps telling you that you have "such a beautiful voice," but you just don't hear it yourself? Let vocal instructor Janessa Cardillo convince you that you really CAN sing! We'll learn about how your voice actually works and how to make it do what you want. At the end of the week, we'll have a short recital to show off your camper's ACTUAL beautiful voice!

Beginning singers ages 8-12

ROCK BAND CAMP

If you're tired of jamming out on your guitar in the comfort of your own home and would like to collaborate with some other musicians, this is the camp for you! This week, we will work with a variety of gigging musicians to learn and polish one or more of the songs that were written at the songwriting camp earlier this summer, in order to prepare to record at the recording camp later this summer. The week will end with a short performance at the Big Bang Dueling Piano Bar in the Flats!
