2019 Camps at Studio Bell

Music From The Ground Up

Ages: 9 – 11

Come explore everything music, building your skills and knowledge from the ground up (a perfect option for beginning players or kids new to music!). With hands-on, ears-on learning, we will dive into the inner workings of sound and learn about how music is made, all while immersed in the unique setting and engaging exhibits of Studio Bell. From constructing your own instruments to creating your own soundscapes, you will build your musical abilities and share your new skills with family and friends in a showcase at the end of the week.

Build A Band

Ages: 11 – 13

Ever wondered what it takes to be in a band? This camp focuses on learning how to play musical instruments and performing as a group. We will introduce key instruments and guide you through the process of songwriting, performing, and marketing your band. From a recording studio tour to daily workshops on jamming, riffing, and creating music, you’ll build your musical skills and maybe even write a hit single! This program wraps up with a jam-along performance where you can show off your newfound skills as a band.

Basic musicality/musical knowledge recommended.

Discover Your Sound

Ages: 13 – 15

You think it, we can help you make it! From songwriting to instrument workshops to looping, we will help you develop the skills you need to create and perform music on your own. This program will introduce you to different musical genres and styles and give you tools to build an original track or performance that highlights your talents. At the end of the week, we’ll host a showcase of original music made and performed by you in our beautiful, world-class facility.
