Mon-Thur: July 30-Aug 2 & Mon-Thur: August 6-9
Every year Fest Camp gives young musicians and vocalists (ages 9-19) the opportunity to work collaboratively with their peers to create a band, learn a set of songs under the guidance of our coaches, learn about musicianship, songwriting, marketing and promoting their band, and finally, take the stage at MUSIKFEST to put on an amazing concert.
Groups are divided up into bands and individual singer/songwriters sessions.  Both groups will work with their peers and coaches to produce stage ready performances at Musikfest 2018.

In addition to working with their bandmates and fellow singers, campers will also get daily training in songwriting.   The students will learn the art of song craft, then under the guidance their individual coaches, each band will create one song of their own (from music structure to lyrics) which will be performed at the finale.

Students must have a proficient understanding of their instrument, as they will be expected to learn their songs independently from camp – either at home or in private lessons with their weekly teachers.
Tuition:  $380 (before 4/30/2018), $420 (5/1 and after)
