Extended Day Electives

Extend the Rock!
For those families looking for a longer and deeper musical experience, we offer an extended day program from 10am – 5pm as well as private “Booster Lessons” before or after camp. Because the bands and boot camps are so focused and intense, the extended day is more relaxed, social and exploratory. Students can opt for projects in History of Rock, Digital Music Production or Songwriting.


Daily Schedule:

  • Extended Day KIDS 8-11 take History of Rock/Listening to Music from 2-3pm followed by Digital Music Production/Songwriting. Dismissal is at 5pm.
  • Extended Day TEENS 12-14 is from 3:15pm – 4:45pm.  Dismissal is at 5pm.
  • Extended Day TEENS 15-17 is from 10am – 11:40am. There is just enough time to grab a snack before bands and boot camps start at noon!
