Through this special 5-day songwriting camp, students will learn how to write their own songs. Students will analyze some of the greatest compositions of the last 60 years in order to develop their own tunes. They will learn about chord progressions, arrangements and other tricks of the trade.

School of Rock camps are "amped up" versions of our Performance Program! * No experience necessary * Space is limited.

Camp runs Monday - Friday. 

Summer Camps are the perfect "amped up" version of our Performance Program where kids not only enhance their musical abilities, but also have a great time and make some new friends as well! 

Camps will start at 9:30 am each day and end at 3:30 pm, except on Friday afternoon when we have our show. Please be at the school by 9:30 am and pick up promptly at 3:30 pm as we open the school up for regular lessons at 3:30 pm (except on Monday when we are closed). There will be a performance Friday afternoon at a nearby venue - Be prepared to be blown away!!! 

Each camper should arrive in an appropriate face mask (required) and have a lunch and snacks packed with them - or you can send them with $10 per day for the school lunch plan which includes lunch and an afternoon snack. We will break to eat around 12:00 am each day. School lunches include Domino’s, Subway, FatBurger, etc. If your kids have any special dietary needs or restrictions, please let us know.

After lunch we go for a quick walk around the neighborhood and then we get back to the music!

Guitarists need to bring a guitar/pick/strap, bassists a bass/strap, singers a microphone, and drummers sticks. Everything else including amps and cables will be provided here at the School.

Here is what a typical day of camp looks like: Depending on the total number of kids, we will be splitting into “bands” of 5, and each group will learn between 5-8 songs in just a week, depending on how much they can handle as a band. At the end of the week, the kids will perform a live rock concert Friday around 1:30pm for friends and family! 

The set list will be decided Monday morning after all the kids have been introduced to each other and the staff. We will do our best to gauge what the kids like most and what will help each of them progress the most as musicians. 

If you would like to sign up for some lessons before camp starts, or you have any questions just give us a call at (323) 999-1919 or send us an email at fairfax@schoolofrock.com.
