At this music production camp, students will be assigned to a group that is appropriate for their ages. They can try their hand at different instruments in a rock band, learn how to write a song, and learn how to make their own music. Additionally, our experienced instructors will offer tips on setting up gigs, building a fan base through social media and streaming services, and how to compile your first press kit. This press kit will include high-resolution images and an impressive one-sheet that showcases your talent. Upon completion of the camp, you'll leave with a studio-mastered demo track to include in your professional press kit.
