Summer Jams

Explore your passion for modern music production and performance!

Register by 7/24

9am – 5pm

Ages 12 – 16

Guitar, bass, keyboard, drum, and voice students will join us for fun, collaborative sessions! You’ll learn more about the technology and skills that make modern musicians succeed, and hone your craft with special guests and expert faculty. This exciting program will help young musicians experience the real-world applications of collaboration, and will end with a special performance and recording. 

Performance track students will collaborate on rock, pop, and contemporary hits to learn basic ensemble skills, including arrangement, balance, changes, and cues. Students will be encouraged to take leadership roles, and guide their fellow band members through a song.

Production track students will learn about the technology and techniques behind today’s top tracks, moving beyond the beats to focus on the relationship between instruments, and will produce a final song performed by the Performance Track students. 

Students will collaborate daily, and will work directly with touring artists at the end of the week to better understand what makes a great song, 

Open to guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, and voice students. Other instruments by permission. One year of lessons or equivalent experience required.
