BandWorks Summer Camp
BandWorks offers four different summer camp programs for kids and teens. Each program provides a supportive environment for young musicians to develop their skills while they have fun playing with other kids. Morning and afternoon sessions are available each week. Supervision between sessions is provided for kids who sign up for both morning and afternoon programs. All of our sessions are lead by trained professional musicians who love to teach.

Intro to Rock Band Instruments
A fun, hands-on workshop for those who want to learn guitar, bass, drums, keyboards or sing. Campers receive basic instruction on a variety of different instruments and get to experience the thrill of playing in a band. Start playing music on the first day, and by the end of the week you’ll be rocking out in a live performance at our studios!
Our summer CD Recording Program is for kids and teens who have some musical experience and are ready to be in a rock band. We match students by instrumentation, age and experience level. The sessions culminate in a professionally recorded CD that each band makes at the end of the week. Each day the band meets in a fully equipped rehearsal studio, and works on honing the handful of songs they’ve chosen for recording. Rehearsals are structured and fun, enabling kids and teens to play the music they want, and work toward the goal of making a CD the kids can take home on Friday. Please note that in our effort to offer the best possible experience in our CD camps, availability may be limited depending on enrollment variables such as age and experience level. Please contact us for specific up-to-date information about signing up.
The Music of... (Green Day / Nirvana / Jimi Hendrix / Beatles / AC/DC)
What makes your favorite band sound the way it does? How can you learn to play like them? Each week this workshop focuses on the music of one of these great rock bands. You will get to explore their sound and learn their musical tricks as you play their songs. We teach you what makes these songs work, breaking the music down so you can understand the band's style and learn to sound like them. All instruments are welcome. By the end of the week your band will perform the band's songs in concert at our studios.
For those about to rock! Each day you'll get a chance to rock out with band mates, picking tunes and riffs you want to jam on. We'll cover just a little music theory (enough to get you going), and spend most of the time having fun jamming, making up songs and improvising. Each week ends in a rocking in-house concert at our studios.
