What is Fest Camp?

Fest Camp is a summer camp program that brings together music students (ages 9-19) of all instruments and voice to create rock/pop bands, learn singing/songwriting techniques, and work together to develop not one, but TWO stage performances for Musikfest 2016.

FEST CAMP: ROCK BAND

Every year Fest Camp gives young musicians and vocalists (ages 9-19) the opportunity to work collaboratively with their peers in a unique summer camp to create a band, learn a set of songs under the guidance of our coaches, learn about musicianship, songwriting, marketing and promoting their band, and finally, take the stage at MUSIKFEST to put on an amazing concert.

Students must have a proficient understanding of their instrument, as they will be expected to learn their songs independently from camp – either at home or in private lessons with their weekly teachers.

FEST CAMP: SINGER/SONGWRITERS

For the first time ever, eight talented vocalists and aspiring songwriters from The Lesson Center’s summer camp program will be giving a completely separate feature performance opportunity at Musikfest.

Students will work with our voice and songwriting staff to develop their own, individual (solo or collaborative) set to be performed on Musikfest’s Lyrikplatz stage.

This camp is limited to eight (8) students.  These students must be intermediate to advanced vocalists who have exhibited strong stage confidence and the desire to better their stage craft.  They may play their own instrument, or be accompanied by someone from the TLC staff.  Each student wishing to perform will be assessed before acceptance.
