Hey Girls – have you ever wanted to rock out – and we don’t mean air guitar! We’re talking about playing, writing and singing your own music – along with other like minded girls.
Well if you feel that singing in the shower just isn’t cutting it anymore you could actually go to Rock Camp this year – and no, it’s not quite like Band Camp. Maybe you’ve seen Camp Rock like a zillion times or love High School Musical, but in any case, at one of these camps, you really focus on the world of rock – learning how to write it, sing it and play it. At the end of the week (or two weeks) you and your band will perform live – in front of the whole camp! Scary – right? Or a dream come true?
So is Rock Camp legit? For Sure – there are a couple of “Big” Rock Camps, like Day Jams, which is a day camp, or the Southern Girls Rock and Roll Camp which is rock camp just for girls – not only is it all about the music, they also want to rock out your self esteem – and as GirlMoguls we can totally get behind that!
So what happens at Camp Rock? Well every one is different, but here are some of the cool things that will give you the authentic Hannah Montana experience:
– Join a Band – based on your experience – from beginner to more experienced, you’ll be paired with other musicians
– Perform great rock songs
– Record your performance
– Design your own band logo for a t-shirt, album covers and other merchandise.
Most of these rock camps have professional musicians who coach and work with you – some even promise celebrity drops ins. Either way you’ll get great hands on experience.
So what should you look for in a Camp Rock experience? Well there are both national ones like Day Jams which is co-ed and has locations throughout the country or there are more local versions run by local musicians. You might even be able to find an all girl Rock Camp like the Southern Girls Rock and Roll Camp in your area.
If you’re interested you can always check the links here, do a search on the Internet (with the ‘rent’s permission of course) or keep an eye out in the local paper this time of year – it’s when most camps and summer programs start advertising.
When you find something you’re interested in, do your research – find out the dates, times and locations. Find out if there’s any one you can talk to – like a past camper- about the experience.
Of course, not even rock n roll is free…so Rock Camp will cost you. But it could be the experience of a lifetime – and we’ll help you convince your parents next time when we present our tips on How to Get What You Want…While Still Being Nice About It…
