Five Day Camps

$450Purchase required to enroll
For Summer 2017, we are hosting 8 five-day themed camps!! Each camp runs 9am-3pm daily, with a real rock performance at the end of the week. For each of our camps, some experience is required on your instrument (vocals, guitar, bass, drums or keys/piano).

Shows will be on the Friday of your camp week. Shows are free and all ages and will last about 1 hour.

About School of Rock Camps...

Rock N’ Roll boot camps are 5 days of LEARNING MUSIC, PLAYING MUSIC, FUN, BAND BONDING and PERFORMANCE! In one week kids go from zero to a full set of songs and performance at a local all ages venue. Group rehearsal, music trivia, song casting, one-on-one attention from our all-star instructors, gear education, and band-related activities are all aimed at helping kids learn a set of songs and be totally ready to rock them by the end of the week. Whether you play drums, sing, shred guitar or bass or play keyboard -- you’ll have a blast.

We teach kids age 8 - 18 and recommend students have some experience coming in. A month or two of lessons at SOR before starting camp is the perfect solution for total beginners. Ask us about discounted lessons for camp prep! If you play sax, violin or any other instruments not in a traditional rock set up, we can most likely work with you! Just ask! Metal mandolin is one of our favorite additions to camp :)

If you're ready to sign up, pick your camp(s) below and sign up online. Or just call and we'll do a quick sign up over the phone, and you can ask questions!!
