Online School of Rock camps are "amped up" versions of our Performance Program! Ages 7-18 * Instruments required for non-singers * Experience preferred but not required * Space is limited!
We're so excited to announce School of Rock Venice's amazing camp program! Camps are the perfect "amped up" version of our Performance Program, and it is our goal that each kid walks away with not just newfound musical abilities, but fantastic memories and friends as well! Here are the important details:
If we ARE cleared for in-person camps:
Please send your kids with an appropriate face mask (required), lunch and snacks, or $10 to buy lunch at a local restaurant (i.e. chinese food or pizza) to be DELIVERED (We will not leave the premises at ANY time). If any of your kids have allergies or special dietary needs, please let us know.
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 and 10 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 at 1 pm 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 we are still not cleared for in-person camps:
Camps will be held online, Monday through Friday 9am to 3pm with a one hour OFFLINE lunch break from 11:30am to 12:30pm every day!
To participate in an Online Camp, students should have a basic proficiency on their instrument, although experience is not required.
Students will need to have a device to record their song parts for the creation of a full band recording. This could be as simple as a mobile phone with voice memo recording or a DAW such as GarageBand, Logic or Pro Tools.
Students should have access to their primary instrument at home (guitar, bass, drums, and keys)
Here are some of the awesome activities we have lined up for our rock campers:
Team building exercises, games and trivia contests to learn about fellow bandmate campers and our camp directors.
Sectionals by instrument cover the fundamentals of playing music in a band setting!
Workshops or Master Classes on various topics such as note values, Blues improv, stagecraft, etc.
Song learning and recording - Students are assigned songs and can work on them in groups online or they can work independently at home.
The goal is for each band to record 1-3 songs every week, and each camp will culminate in a remote Online Listening Party!
If you must cancel we require at least one week's notice in order to issue you a full refund. You will receive a 50% refund for any cancellations between 1 week and 24 hours before camp starts. We cannot issue any refunds of any kind for cancellations made within 24 hours of the start of the first day of camp.
