Does your kid long to be a rock star? Does she/he constantly play an “air guitar” when you’re not watching?
Now all kids can cultivate their inner rock stars during weeklong summer band camps organized by The Rockademy in Solana Beach.
The series of nine, one-week sessions begins June 14. The final session begins Aug. 9.
Designed for musicians of ages 7 through 17, the camps meet from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday at The Rockademy studios at 524 Stevens Ave., Solana Beach. Each session concludes with a public performance from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday immediately following the camp. Performances are held at the Tower 13 restaurant in Cardiff.
“Preparing for gigs gives kids a reason to practice,” said Rockademy owner James Couzens, “and the shows at Tower 13 give families and friends a chance to see the young rockers in action.”
Participants must have basic proficiency on their instruments. To prepare musicians for band camps, The Rockademy offers individual lessons.
The Rockademy opened in 2013.
Rates for one-week band camps are $395 for new students and $375 for existing students.
