Nuts & Bolts

Our program runs Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m at our studio on 279 Main Street, Rockland. We will be meeting in our large, newly constructed ensemble room (Studio 5). The day will be approximately organized as following:

  • Morning Session (9:30-12:00): Direct instructional time, guest speakers, theory, improv/music games, group conversations, topics review, listening and writing sessions.

  • Lunch (12:00-1:00): To be held outside every day if weather permits. Feel free to bring soccer balls, footballs, frisbees, etc.

  • Afternoon Session (1:00-3:30): Playing time and rehearsals!

Please plan on providing packed lunches for students. We will provide snacks and a pizza party for Friday’s lunch.

In addition to the lead teacher, all camps will have the support of a teaching assistant and specialty guest teachers to make sure students have instrument-specific instruction. Regardless of enrollment numbers, all camps will have a minimum of two instructors.


June 24th - June 28th | Ages 11-18: 

Students will learn the ins and outs of songwriting, write individual songs, record demos, and celebrate by performing their songs at an open-mic style party on Friday evening. Throughout the week, students will explore themes such as cultivating creativity, how to tell powerful stories through both words and melodies, and stage performance techniques to put both the audience and the performer at ease. Toward the end of the week, as students prepare to record their demos, we will also examine topics related to the recording industry and music business world.

Experience: One year of private instruction, basic understanding of notation and chords


July 8th - July 12th | Ages 12-18:

An immersive experience in all things blues -- the history, the style, and the music of legends like John Lee Hooker and Big Mama Thornton -- culminating in a once in a lifetime opportunity as students take the big stage at the North Atlantic Blues Festival on Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15th to open the weekend's festivities. Visiting teachers will work with students in breakout groups to refine both their individual and ensemble skills.

This is a perfect program for students who are in jazz band and want to take their playing to the next level as well as for those who would love to play jazz but have been nervous to give it a try. Students will listen, play, improvise, create and record in a supportive, fun setting.
