Professional Musician in Training
What are contemporary musicians in Chicago creating right now? How do they market themselves? How are they using computers, pedals, and other technology to experiment and create? This class is for the musically inclined 4th-8th grader (string, vocal, piano, and rock students alike!) who are interested in songwriting, experimenting with new technology, recording songs and compositions, and learning how to use recording software. All instruments and experience levels encouraged and welcome. 10-14 years old (more on our websit)

Becoming a Pro Rocker Camp
Want to learn to shred on stage, write your own songs, and put on a rock show? Rockers in this camp will learn techniques essential for the well versed rocker such as blues and pentatonic scales, power chords and more. Rockers will form a band with their fellow rockers, come up with their own band name, set list, and rock out all week! The focus of each day will be organizing- from designing their set list, posters, and outfits to practicing up to 4-5 songs- a real rock show for their family and friends at the end of the week (the show will be at 4:00 on Friday!)

Pit Orchestra Camp
Being a string player often means we make music for dancers and singers to showcase their talent. As string musicians, we must learn to accompany others in their song and dance pursuits! At Pit Orchestra Camp, we will collaborate with the Musical Theater Camp to put on a mini-production by the end of a two weeks. We will learn 5-6 pieces to accompany Musical Theater Students, and put on a short performance at the end of the two weeks. (more on our website)
