Additional Camp Info
Can’t play guitar? Don’t “Fret”! Our beginner guitar camp is a 5 day rock n roll experience that will take complete beginners and get them up and playing real rock songs in one short week. Students can expect to learn the basic fundamentals of guitar such as chording, tuning, strumming and picking. We will also explore all the cool equipment like amps, pedals and other gear needed to play like a rock star! Students will need a guitar to participate in this camp. Guitars are available to rent from School of Rock for the week of camp. Details on rentals are below.
By design there is no end of camp performance. This allows for the camp's focus to be solely on acclimating students to rock music and to learning a new instrument. We will produce and share fun videos to give a peek into what students experience during the week.

In addition to their instrument, students will need a pair of earplugs, guitar strap, guitar picks, and electronic tuner. Students are welcome to purchase all items elsewhere and bring with them to camp. For convenience, all items can be purchased @ SoR on day one of camp if desired. Look for a welcome email prior to camp with details and pricing of products available.
