About My Voice Music’s Rock Camps:

A fast-paced introduction to music and performance available to individuals with or without musical experience that explores what it takes to be in a band and create music!

  • Students may learn to play the drum-set, electric guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, keyboards and to sing!
  • Participants work with experienced volunteers and staff in order to write their own song as a group!
  • Students are encouraged to use music and poetry to express themselves while jamming, singing and writing lyrics.  They work together as a band to choose musical styles, instrumentation, lyrical content and while rehearsing and performing.  We ask all youth to bring a positive attitude and a willingness to try new things.
  • My Voice Music provides all instruments for youth to use during our programs.  If a student already has an instrument, they may bring it to class.
