Summer Jam is a fun-packed, intensive music camp designed to immerse students in an exploration of live performance, improvisation, music technology, and music history/appreciation. The group will be led on a rich and diverse musical journey through hands-on instrument experience, high-energy games and activities, group jams, guest performances by world-class musicians, electronic music production, and field trips. Summer Jam is open to interested students of all experience levels. We will spend the week actively engaged in a creative environment, where we will participate in making music together that will strengthen their understanding of rhythm, melody, beats, and working as a band.
For a section of each day, students also will dive into the world of electronic music production through the use of Apple’s Logic Pro X or GarageBand, and learn how to produce original music in any style they imagine, from pop music to video game soundtracks. Nearly every day, we will welcome a special guest performer from a different genre — from touring rock bands to champion- ship-winning classical virtuosos to world music — to perform for the students. The Summer Jam with Dylan and Kyle will be an inspiring, all-encompassing musical experience for your child!
