A minimum of 2 years experience on their instrument is recommended, but all levels and abilities are welcome. Participants will receive personalized instruction and find their place in the band. Repertoire will be selected based on student interest and won’t necessarily be strictly rock. The group will explore their musical style and preference to work towards a performance at the end of the week. Guitarists and bassists should bring their own instrument to camp.
