In School Music Camps
Designed for students of all levels, from beginners to seasoned artists, this program is taught by real musicians using the unique B2R method, which will have students playing full songs in no time! Students are placed in a band according to their age and skill level and the requirements of ensemble playing, teamwork and achievement of musical objectives are stressed. Depending on ability level, development of original material is strongly encouraged. Each weekly session culminates in a public performance and the recording of a CD. This camp is split into two age categories: for kids 7 - 9 and 9+.
Bach to Rock is proud to announce the B2R Glee Club!

Each student will explore fun vocal exercises, singing in harmony, and cool choreography while performing arrangements of popular songs. The B2R Glee Club provides a group learning experience that emphasizes reading music, intonation, listening skills, rhythm, and healthy vocal technique. Each weekly session culminates in a public performance and the recording of a CD.
Do you have an awesome band that's rocking covers and writing songs, but not sure of what to do next? Come learn how to promote your music and get gigs! Find out how to create a press kit, including one sheets, photos and even a professional demo. Work in a state of the art studio with professional engineers to create your own signature sound.
If your child loves music and technology, this is the camp for them! Students get hands-on experience while learning the fundamentals of mixing songs, scratching sounds, and DJ music theory. Learning from world class DJ instructors, students work on individual state-of-the-art DJ workstations and will perform a short 2 to 3 song mini mix at the end of the program. No previous DJ experience required. This camp is for kids 10+.
Ever wonder how the most popular music gets created? Are you looking to add original music to your TikTok/YouTube videos? It starts with a beat! Unlock the creativity of making music without knowing how to play an instrument. Students learn the basics of creating Hip-Hop, EDM, and Trap music using instrument loops, sampling, and sequencing to create their own beat from scratch. No musical experience is required! To participate in this camp, students need a computer (Mac or PC) with Google Chrome installed to utilize BandLab for Education, a free online music production platform. At the end of this camp, students will present their beat to the class and be prepared to enroll in either Songwriting or Music Production Camps to learn more about creating their own songs.
From day one, students gain hands on experience with industry standard recording equipment. Using Pro Tools recording software, they learn about music production from both behind the mixing board and in the live room. Students work side by side with a B2R Audio Engineer. They record live B2R bands, learn about microphones and how to place them, explore different audio effects and experiment with recording techniques to create professional recordings.
