Camp Description

Rock, R&B, Jazz, Indie, Folk, Punk, Pop… Whatever your style of music, our 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!
