MUSIC CAMP

Stay up to date with Compass Music Camp at our Facebook Page!

Compass Music Camp is a six day program focused on giving mid-Missouri youth the opportunity to learn, create,  and perform. Camp participants will have instrument lessons, theory class, history class, sound/recording workshop, art workshop, social media workshop, song writing class, screen printing, and band rehearsal. Each day the campers will have a private concert from a local or touring artist. This program is designed for campers to experience the joy of writing and playing music from musicians in our community. We accept 20- 30 campers (8-18 years of age) and put them into 5 or 6 bands.
