Get your music out of the basement and onto the stage! Attend MacPhail's most popular and longest running camp for a week of jammin' with new friends and creating your own original songs. Rock out with other musicians in a band coached by MacPhail faculty, performing both cover songs and original songs. Attend workshops on songwriting, how to rehearse, and an instrument specific class. Perform at the legendary 7th St. Entry on the final day of the camp.
This camp is for singers, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboard players looking to meet new people and have fun playing rock music. No self-contained bands are accepted - take what you learn at Rock Week back to your band. Participants must supply their own drums, guitar, bass, and amps and have had at least one year of lessons on their instrument.
New this year! Rock Week now has an option for our younger aspiring rock stars! Students ages 9-11 are invited to attend a shorter version of the camp from 9:00-11:00 AM to learn several cover tunes with your band and perform a short set as an opener for the Friday concert at the Entry.
9:00-11:00 - Ages 9-12, Tuition: $210
12:00-4:00 - Ages 12-16, Tuition: $435
Instructors: Zeb Cruikshank, Jourdan Myers, Erik Schee
