Join us for our Blues Camp as we explore the music of innovators like Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf who inspired generations of Rockers all over the world.
Additional Camp Info
The Blues had a baby and they named it Rock and Roll. The British Invasion bands like the Rolling Stones (who are named after a Muddy Waters song) took the Blues and turned them up to 11. Campers will learn the importance of the Blues and explore the music of Howlin Wolf, Bo Diddley, Big Mama Thornton and many others. At the end of the week, students will put on a live performance. Great for students 8-18 years of age who have had some previous instruction.
All aspects of this camp Monday through Thursday will be held at School of Rock Elmhurst - 105 N. Maple Ave. Elmhurst, IL 60126. The camp will conclude with an all-ages performance for friends and family on Friday. If local regulations allow, the performance will take place at a local music venue. If restrictions due to COVID limit performances with a large in-person audience, the performance will take place at our school with a small audience as allowed by then current COVID regulation. A live stream will be made available so that an unlimited audience of friends and family may watch from the safety and comfort of their homes.
