Our camps, Ready2Rock (ages 5-10) held concurrently with Summer Jam (ages 11-17), are open to girls, boys, trans and gender non-conforming youth.
In an effort to practice our inclusivity and collaboration values further, Summer Jam replaces our signature camps previously offered: Southern Girls Rock and Roll Camp, and Tennessee Teens Rock Camp). YEAH! recognizes every young person to be strong, creative and empowered. We strive to provide them with a safe space where together they all have the potential to advance their talents.
Summer campers receive daily instruction on the musical instrument they have selected (bass, drums, guitar or vocals); participate in workshops about music and the role music has and continues to play in shaping a more just community; and panels about other art forms, basics of music theory, composition, and lyric writing. Campers compose their own original song, and perform it at the end of the program in a showcase that is open to the public.
Instructors lead participants to favor collaboration over competition, create community and be comfortable having open and transparent conversations around inclusivity. They are also an encouraging guide while challenging youth to expand their musical skills and knowledge. Examples of some of our hands-on workshops are: stage presence, zine making, band promotion, synthesizers, music genres, and music as a media for creating and advocating for an inclusive community. Students are placed in a band based on instrument of choice, experience, and availability. Bands decide the style of music and lyrics for their songs, their name and all the other creative elements for their success.
Support a culture of inclusivity, positive self-esteem and development of music skills that serve a lifetime!
