2020 Summer Camps at Sunburst School of Music

Our 2020 Spring Break and Summer Camps are here! Each camp is an action packed week of creative music making, art projects and performances.

The 90's Rock

Sunburst is cranking it up to an 11 this year with the Punk and Alternative Rock Camp, The 90’s Rock. We are going to take a deep dive into the power chords, pounding drums, punchy bass lines and potent vocals that make the high energy music known as punk rock! Get ready to perform music from the Greats like Nirvana, Weezer, Green Day, Rancid, The Ramones, The Clash, Blink 182 and more! Harnessing the energy of this style we will create our own powerful group sound and performance sure to make the legends proud. All campers between the ages of 8 and 14 are welcome, though we hope you’ll be pumped for a week of punk and alternative!

If you’ve ever wanted to play in a punk rock band, this is your chance! Each class will include listening examples, detailed breakdowns of this style, in-class rehearsals of cover songs and a chance to write your own punk song. You can also expect to come up with a killer band name and customize your own punk rock attire for the end of the week concert where you’ll get to showcase your hard work! So HEY! HO! LETS GO! and join us for a week of music that is certain to rock your socks off.

Night at the Funk Opera

 

Join Sunburst for another epic edition of our inspiring musical theater camp, Night at 

The Funk Opera. Campers will learn the entire framework of developing a Funk Opera, influenced by famous Funk artists, and write an original storyline told entirely through singing and instrumentals. In addition to creating a lyrical narrative, campers will work together to create the ultimate stage set through handmade props, dramatic lighting effects, costume designs and any other artistic visuals to spotlight their story. 

Everyone will be sure to learn new skills, discuss the evolution of concept albums and how to combine the edginess and precise inflection a funk opera requires. This camp is ideal for those who can already play an instrument and would like to take their talents further through the making of one cohesive album’s worth of fantastical narrative music. By the end of the week, our campers will be ready to hit the Sunburst Stage with an amazing musical performance that will capture the hearts of their audience and enchant the imagination. If you’re between the ages of 8 and 14, Get On Up, and let’s turn Sunburst into a boogie wonderland!

Camp Studio

Camp Studio is Sunburst’s most fun-packed camp of the season! In just five days campers will be challenged with the task of writing, producing and recording original songs in collaboration with other creative young musicians. Together we’ll go through every part of the music production process and learn to use tools such as DAW software, microphones, audio interfaces, software instruments and more. 

In addition to learning the musical aspects of creating an album, campers will learn the importance of album packaging, how to work together to design compelling album art and craft DIY music videos for a few of their favorite songs. We welcome all campers between the ages of 8 and 14 who are looking to learn the ropes of recording and put together a stellar album to share with the world. No previous experience is required! To celebrate their hard work, campers will plan their very own Album Release Party at the end of the week for their family, friends and FANS!
