In this special 5-day camp, students will analyze some of the greatest compositions of the last 60 years and learn how to write their own songs.

 

Please note: this is an online camp which will be conducted via Zoom.

 

Through this unique five-day songwriting camp, students will learn how to write their own songs! They will learn about chord composition, arrangements and other tricks of the trade. They'll also have the opportunity to collaborate with young musicians from across the United States!

THE SCHEDULE

We'll spend Mon-Wed writing songs. On Thursday we'll record each songwriter and their song for a live stream concert on Friday afternoon. Friday morning will be spent on fine-tuning the songs. In addition to songwriting, students will understand how to use a Digital Audio Workstation to collaborate with other musicians!

EQUIPMENT

Students need a device to record their song parts for the creation of a full band recording. This can be as simple as a mobile phone with voice memo recording or a DAW such as GarageBand.

Students will also need access to their primary instrument at home. 

PRE-REQUISITES

To participate in the Songwriting Camp, students should have a basic proficiency on a musical instrument such as piano/keys or guitar. This camp is great for students 10-18 years old WITH PREVIOUS music instruction. For students not currently enrolled in School of Rock, a free Remote Trial Lesson is required to assess the student for camp placement. (Call us at 651.292.1917 to set this up).
