The goal of this program is for campers to have a better feel for how the pros play ROCK! They will get to play in 2 HONORS ROCK BANDS, and also have a special Honors Theory Class where they will work together to compose an original piece. All of our ROCK faculty are both performers and educators who are dedicated to giving campers the best experience possible! And don't forget to save the date - we end camp with a concert where every camper performs with their band!
