What Kids Get!
Universal Rock School’s Rock Camp is one of the only instrument centered music immersion programs in the Pinellas County Area. Open to ages 5 to 11, with opportunities for Beginners to Advanced players. Your child will not only develop skills in their personal chosen instrument but will also be given introductory lessons on all of our main instruments, as well as the foundations of reading music, giving them a broad and strong base for further musical development. The daily activities build teamwork, creativity and musical skills! Camp sessions run from one week long to the whole summer! See the summer rock camp flyer for rates and to pick your preferred session length. Four and Eight-week sessions will culminate in a final Friday recorded album plus special lesson offers after camp is finished. Every two weeks campers will make an album that will be uploaded to soundcloud.com to show their work!
