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 workshop, recording workshop, art workshop, social media workshop, song writing class, screen printing, and band rehearsal.  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.
