Our Goal

Our goal is for every musician, whether a beginner or advanced student, to signficantly improve his or her musical skills, expand his or her repertoire, and be inspired to new heights in his or her musical development. At the end of the day our goal is to nudge you out of your comfort zone while having a ton of fun along the way. How do we do this? We hire the best musicians and teachers known to us from NYC and from around the country (such as the Berklee College of Music in Boston), and teachers who love teaching. We want every students to have an experience filled with fun, friendship, and to know that feeling of confidence and accomplishment that comes through performance.

At the end of the day, whether you are a beginner or advanced musician, our goal is to nudge you out of your comfort zone to a completely new level of musicianship while having a lot of fun. How do we do this? We hire the best musicians and teachers known to us from NYC and from around the country (such as the Berklee College of Music in Boston), AND teachers who love teaching.

Students will learn new found skills, make friends, and gain confidence on their instrument(s) in a fun and supportive environment with master teachers.  This camp is open to students from 8 - 19, and accepts all instrumentalists and vocalists.

As you know, Rock music is an umbrella that covers many styles of music. Musicians will learn to play with others and explore music from the roots of rock-roll through the music of today (Beatles, Adele, Green Day, Billy Joel, Taylor Swift, Rolling Stones, Twenty One Pilots, Lumineers, and many other artists, not recent and classic.

Students will have lessons in the morning and afternoon, play in a number of bands, perform in student concerts, choose from a number of electives (Song Writing, Music Tech, Improvisation, Composing for Film, Advanced Harmony, Reading/Writing Workshop, Transcription Workshop, and More), and participate in a number of music workshops.

Students will be grouped based upon age and level of experience, and will be placed in the "upper, middle, or lower rock school."  Upon the conclusion of each weekly session, the musicians will demonstrate their new found skills at our Friday Concert Series.
