Music Summer Camps: A Week of Musical Discovery

 by Terri Paglusch

Rock Band Camp Rehearsal in Overland Park

In the immortal words of Alice Cooper, "School’s out for the summer!" Time for vacations and hours spent at the pool. And... if you sign up for a Music House Summer Camp, it's time to explore your passion for music!

The summer, with fewer hours of scheduled activity, is a wonderful time for kids to dig into interesting pursuits they haven’t yet had enough time to explore. Most children, at some point, show an interest in music. So why not use these summer days as a time to let them begin exploring?

What Camps Are Available?

Day Jam Camp

WHO: Ages 6-8 and 9-12 who are interested in music. Can be beginners or have some experience. Separate camps for each age group.

WHAT: Explore playing different instruments, singing, and putting on a show. Even if you’re not yet ready for a rock band you’ll learn how to play songs in a band style or sing like a pop idol. Star in a show on the last day with the new friends you’ve made at camp.

WHEN: Ages 6-8: July 10-14, July 17-21, and July 31-Aug 4. Ages 9-12: June 26-30 & July 10-14.

Rock Band Camp

WHO: Ages 9-17 with some experience playing an instrument or singing. We’ll provide a free evaluation to see if you’re ready for this camp. Two skill levels available.

WHAT: Tired of playing music by yourself? This camp introduces you to playing music with others in a real rock band. You’ll be coached by an experienced teacher to write and perform an original song and play covers of popular rock songs. Top this off by playing with your band in a mini rock concert the last day of camp.

WHEN: Level 1: June 26-30, July 17-21, and July 31-Aug 4. Level 2: July 24-28.

End the week letting your friends and family see what you’ve learned by performing in a mini concert on the last day of camp.

WHEN: July 24-28.
