What is our Rock Band Boot Camp program all about? It's about making music with others, with peers, in a band situation. And it does not matter how much or how little experience you have—because you are about to become Experienced.
ONE BIG SUCCESS STORY:
Our Summer 2012 Adult Boot Camp resulted in the amazing band, Odd Man Out, five people who met up once a week for 8 weeks this summer, only to come away with a 10-song (!) set, and a packed debut performance at Joe's Irish Pub in Beacon. Odd Man Out is continuing to be a band! They're the latest official addition to the Beacon music scene. We wish them tons more fun playing and lots of gigs as great as their first one.
Here is Odd Man Out playing their first show ever—in Sept 2012...
...Our Adult Blues Boot Camp performed at the Beacon Barks Dog Parade, Spring 2012...
...And here are a few words from one of our kids' (ages ranging 12-15) Rock Band Boot Camps>>
This is culled from a much longer 3-part series Cablevision produced in 2011.
These are the rock campers (ages 12, 13, & 14) from the 2011 Spring session performing at Beacon Riverfest. They did quite all right.
Our Boot Camps are offered in ADULTS & KID Sessions. Anyone. Any age. These programs put you in a band and get you playing on the very first day. It doesn't matter how much or how little experience you have.
You'll learn how to truly play music with others. While rocking out with your peers in the rehearsal studio, you'll get better at your instrument and develop the skills required to play and perform with others.
Each rock camp session culminates in a student performance that parents, family and friends are invited to attend.
And while we may call it rock band boot camp, there's really so much more that we offer. Coming up, we've got new rock camp sessions in SONGWRITING and RECORDING, an investigation into real COUNTRY music, the AMERICAN SONGBOOK, FUNK and its origins, and a great new class for ELECTRIC GUITAR PLAYERS.
