*NEW THIS YEAR! All of our camp performances will be at our new performance space that is right in the middle of our new music center. This is an amazing opportunity to maximize our practice time and performance space. No more schlepping equipment down the street or cramming into tight spaces. Woohoo! We are so excited!!

**All Camps include lunch with a drink and a snack every day. We think it's

important to support our community while indulging in the delicacies that Saline has to offer. While we haven't locked down the menu yet, we promise it will not disappoint! Of course, Alex Johnson will whip up his special 3 cheese grilled cheese sandwiches with secret sauce - it's a camp favorite! Vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, and allergy free options are available all days. We also have a super fun field trip to the local Dairy Queen for Ice Cream!

Camp #1 - YOUNG ROCKER BAND CAMP (ages 7 and up):

INSTRUMENTS: GUITAR, BASS, DRUMS, KEYBOARD, SAX, VOICE, VIOLIN.

This week long camp provides a fun, yet diverse educational curriculum to offer a unique summer music experience. Every morning the campers will rotate through various hands-on classroom environments with specific tasks and goals. The campers will learn about rock history by playing some of the most influential rock songs from the 50s to present. Campers will learn how to sing scales and how to integrate their scale knowledge with famous rock melodies. Additionally, the campers will learn the fundamentals of rhythm through music games. The campers will also learn how to troubleshoot their gear so they will feel right at home on stage during their epic rock performances.


During the afternoon, students will learn the fundamentals of songwriting by learning one quintessential rock song in its entirety and ten emulating said song with an original composition under the direction of the band leader, a knowledgeable member of A2MC staff. They will also completely write a song from start to finish, as a band, then practice both songs to perform at the end of the week. Music campers will learn how to rehearse with a group and how to develop good group practice skills while having fun.

CAMP #2 SONIC THE HEDGEHOG: THE ROCK OPERA

INSTRUMENTS: GUITAR, BASS, DRUMS, KEYBOARD, SAX, VOICE, VIOLIN.

Last year, we created a rock opera based on the Nintendo classic "Super Mario Brothers." This year, we will explore the Sega classic and recently released Paramount movie "Sonic The Hedgehog." Campers will arrive on Monday and familiarize themselves with Sonic and write a plot based upon the video games. They will then be paired off into groups that will decide how best to make props and write musical numbers for the performance. Our Friday performance will be a non-stop musical that is sure to delight, surprise, and regale our audience. We are looking for experienced musicians and enthusiastic actors, singers, and dancers who will never be the same after this week of creative overload! Do this, you'll love it!

CAMP #3: BEATLES CAMP (all ages):

INSTRUMENTS: GUITAR, BASS, DRUMS, VIOLIN, KEYBOARD, VOICE, CELLO, WOODWIND, BRASS

Fifty years ago, this year, the most monumental punctuation mark of the Beatles career, "Let It Be" was recorded. To celebrate this epic album, we will focus this year's Beatles camp solely on the album that changed music history. We encourage non-traditional rock instrumentalists: violinists, cellists, woodwinds, and brass players to enroll. Young rockers will be assembled with other campers into a band and they will perform songs from the Let It Be record. Throughout the week, campers will participate in Beatles trivia, watch Beatles performances, and learn about the Beatles' creative process. But the real gem of the week will be the performance of most of "Let It Be" and making memories by celebrating one of our most consequential albums of the twentieth century. Parents, bring your tissues for this one.

CAMP #4 POP CAMP (10 and over)

INSTRUMENTS: GUITAR, BASS, DRUMS, VIOLIN, KEYBOARD, VOICE, SAX

In this spectacular pop music camp, our campers will learn what it takes to put on a variety show. Throughout the week, campers will be exposed to group music activities, analyze performances by the most notable musicians from the 20th century, and learn special techniques they used to create their most memorable compositions. On Friday, you will see a show that is an entertaining, non-stop, 30 minute long, POP TUNE EXTRAVAGANZA that is filled with the catchiest pop hits from the 70s to the present day. If you like pop music, WE WANT YOU!

INSTRUMENTS: GUITAR, BASS, DRUMS, KEYBOARD, SAX, VOICE, VIOLIN.

At this rock band camp, we will learn the essentials of musicianship and teamwork in order to put on an EPIC rock show on Friday! For the duration of the week, campers will be paired with other young musicians who will learn how to emulate rock greats by learning a cover song with a knowledgeable instructor. Later in the week, each band will be given a ridiculous prompt from which they will write an original song. Throughout the week, the campers will work on a large ensemble number for the finale: a rock sing-a-long that is sure to have you singing and dancing along! You do NOT want to miss this one!
