#1 OUR PHILOSOPHY. We care A LOT. We want our students to grow as musicians AND as people. So when somebody comes to our summer program, we care about them, we watch out for them, and we expect the very best from them.
#2 There are THREE core programs: Boot Camp, Rock Band 101, and Intermediate/Advanced Rock Bands
#3 There is an EXTENDED DAY option, from 10am - 5pm. Those campers who want or need a longer experience will deepen their musical skills with our Digital Music Production & Songwriting class. Because the bands and boot camps are so focused and intense, the electives are more relaxed and exploratory. Additional Tuition: $290 for 2 weeks. You can also sign up for private lessons before or after camp.
#4 There is an INCREDIBLE SHOW on the last Thursday of each camp. The show is in a New York City nightclub, with sound, lights, and fog. The kids play at 3:00pm. The 12-14 year old teens play at 4:00pm. And the 15-17 year old teens play at 6:00pm. If you have a younger camper, watch their show, then take them out for dinner, and finally bring them back so they can see what 5 years of practice looks and sounds like!
#5 Drop Off / Pick Up: Drop off begins 30 minutes before a given program, pickup ends 30 minutes after.
