Rock + Blues Camp

JULY 19 - 23

Camp Description

Join middle and high school student musicians in grades 6 - 12 from around the area for a week of Rock + Blues camp!

Rock, R&B, Jazz, Indie, Folk, Punk, Pop… Whatever your style of music, the Arts+ Rock+Blues Camp will teach you to jam out. Students will learn and perform alongside active gigging musicians in the Charlotte area. Throughout the week, we will dive into students’ individual musical interests through learning to play in combos, audio engineering software, digital recording, improvisation, songwriting, chart reading, and soloing. The Rock+Blues Camp will help you to unleash your inner rocker!
