Camps

Five Day Summer Camps $325Purchase required to enroll

Our comprehensive camp experience is designed to hone music performance and ensemble skills in a creative and fun environment. We know from experience that playing in a band situation speeds learning and creates “seasoned” musicians. Even relatively advanced musicians are amazed at the amount of progress they make when regularly playing with other musicians. Students work in a hands-on atmosphere that includes:

Learning the nuts and bolts of live performance
Studio/band rehearsal time
Instruction from real music professionals
Music theory basics
Rock & Roll music appreciation
Interacting with other young musicians
A LIVE rock show performance for your friends and family
Having fun!

At School of Rock Memphis, we offer 2 types of camps designed for different ages and skill levels:

Rock 101 Camp - Rock 101 Camp is designed for beginner musicians ages 8 - 12. Campers must choose a primary instrument for the week from electric guitar, electric bass, drums, keyboard, or vocals, but they do not need to have prior experience on the instrument. This camp focuses more on a fun approach to the fundamentals of rock n roll performance, and the camp does finish off with a live performance by the campers on Friday afternoon at School of Rock Memphis.

Performance Boot Camp - Performance Boot Camp is designed for intermediate to advanced musicians ages 10 - 17. Campers must have some proficiency on electric guitar, electric bass, drums, keyboard, or vocals which includes at least 6 months of lessons or training. This camp jumps straight into a more intermediate band rehearsal environment, and these kids will rehearse and perform an 8 - 12 song show on Friday evening. Our boot camp shows are off site at a real music venue in Memphis. This year's locations will be announced at camp time.

Five Day Songwriting Camp $325Purchase required to enroll

Our Summer Songwriting/Recording Camp is a 5 day day camp dedicated to teaching the beginning craft of songwriting. Songwriting and recording go hand in hand, so we will also delve into the general recording basics that can be applied to any recording programs. Our camp will work with Garageband, a program most kids have on their Apple devices.

Three Day Camp $195Purchase required to enroll

This three day camp is designed for students 12 - 18 years old and is a deep dive into the art of songwriting and its process from the initial creative flow of a song to the nuts and bolts of a finished recorded demo song. We will explore arrangement, instrumentation, melody, harmony, rhythm, lyrics, and more. Students will learn to work independently but will also learn to collaborate with other musicians. The group will work together to create their own song and they will record multiple versions of the song by the completion of camp.

So whether you are an established writer or just getting started, there is something for everyone in this winter break camp. Space is limited so enroll today!
