The Wonders Of Opera

Rock Band Camp
Dates: August 5th-9th
Time: 8am-10am beginners,

Instructor Robert Perry will help you find your inner rock star by forming a rock band! There will be two sessions to accommodate different skill levels. The morning session consists of teaching the basics of the instrument of the student’s choice and working on a cover song. The afternoon session will move at a quicker pace and requires previous knowledge of the student’s instrument of choice. Campers will work on a more complex cover song and potentially write an original song. Both sessions will culminate in a performance on Friday.

Geared toward preparing incoming 7th and 8th graders for Barrington Middle School A Cappella auditions (held in September this year). This workshop led by Michelle Lavin will help middle school students audition with confidence.
