An Extraordinary Summer Musical Experience for All Instruments and Voice Ages 6-17.
This summer give your child the chance to find out what it is like to be a rock star.
Since the year 2000, future rockers have had the opportunity to experience five days of music at the Mike Risko Music School Rock Band Camps. These one week intensive summer camps give students the opportunity to learn from professional musicians just what it's like to be a member of a real rock band. In 2013 the Rock Band Camp will become a full day and rockers will participate from 10-4 each day.
Students are placed in bands with others at a comparable level, and each band is assigned a manager (one of our instructors) to guide them through the songwriting and rehearsal process. Bands work on writing all their own material, lyrics and music. In addition to performing skills, band members are taught how to promote their band, how to project themselves on stage and how to operate sound equipment. Students are also given group lessons focusing on the skills they need to play with their band. They watch their peers perform and top off their musical adventure by playing a huge show at a local venue.
Rockers come from all over Westchester to be a part of this exciting program. Some sign up on their own while others join us with their band for some extra coaching and the chance to be a part of the huge show at the end. Many of the bands stay together after the summer has ended while others sign up as a band to be a part of one of our many workshops that we hold during the school year. This camp is truly an incredible experience for kids as they learn about teamwork, develop musical skills and gain confidence, all through music.
