Maine Academy of Modern Music's popular Rock Camp Series provides young aspiring musicians a place where they can learn some serious Rock 'n' Roll, and have a seriously good time doing it! We offer a week-long crash course in modern music during which students will learn how to play in and run a real band of their own. This camp teaches how to get out of the garage and in to a studio or on to a stage.
Throughout the week kids are given opportunities to play in a rock band and learn how to play cover songs, as well as how to write an original song from scratch. While at Rock Camp, the students are instructed by accomplished educators and members of local working bands who offer their own inside tips on self-promotion, booking, and gigging. The experience also offers campers the chance to talk with various professionals from the music biz while on the Camp’s several field trips to local radio stations & recording studios. Students will learn about the history of rock and even some music theory!
