What Will They Do?
A typical Jam Academy Jr. Camp day would include: learning the basics of guitar, drums, and keyboards; how to read and play notes and/or tablature; some improvisation; musical dynamics; musical terminology. Camps for younger kids may include arts & crafts and some light physical activity. There is final day rock concert for each band so bring on the sunglasses, hats and rockstar gear!
Jam Academy + campers (ages 12 and up) will benefit from prior experience with their instrument of choice. The majority of time in this camp is comprised of learning, practicing and at times, possibly recording material in preparation for a sweet rock show on the last day of the camp.
Songwriting & Production Basics (usually ages 12 and up) Attendees will have fun learning songwriting and production basics by deconstructing hit songs and recreating them with either some hilarious parodies. The goal is for students to create their own original compositions that they can share with friends, family and the rest of the world! We'll celebrate with a rad listening party and pizzas on the last day of camp.
