Choose between the guitar, bass, drums, piano, or voice. Students learn vocal warm-ups, music theory, composing and performing. Traditional techniques are applied to popular music of today so students have a solid foundation in music fundamentals. Beginners through advanced players and singers are welcome. Many students return year after year to this fantastic camp. At the end of the 2-week session students will perform live on stage in front of family and friends at Tivoli Village.
