UNIVERSITY OF ROCK WINTER ROCK CAMP
FORM A BAND. LEARN KILLER SONGS. PERFORM A ROCKSHOW!
Our 4 day intensive winter rock camp is designed to ACCELERATE/MAXIMIZE our students learning curve by combining private/group lessons with top notch coaching in playing with a live band, songwriting, music theory and more. The main focus of the camp is to introduce students to playing in a band setting where they are able to develop their stage skills as well as their confidence in playing with other musicians. It is said that playing in a band situation is one of the fastest ways to speed up the learning process.
In addition to students honing their performance and ensemble skills in a fun and creative environment, each student will perform a LIVE rock show for friends and family the last day of camp!
Our winter camps run for 4 consecutive days from 10am to 4pm and are held in fully-equipped studio rooms with guitar and bass amps, microphones, a PA system, and drum kit. Open to ages 7-18 (all skill levels welcome).
*Each student will get his/her own custom UROCK Winter Camp binder with pens, pencils, sheet music, and class handouts.
"This was the best camp experience when it comes to guitar. Not only did my son learn how to rock out with other musicians, he learned how to perform on stage like a true Rockstar! RockCamp has brought him a new level of confidence."- Parul B.
