Summer Music Programs was founded in 1993 in order to give young musicians an opportunity to meet and play with other musicians. We encourage them to play the songs they want to play. A member of our staff works full time with each band (sometimes composed of musicians who have never met before) to choose songs, rehearse them and prepare for their recording session as well as the weekly concert.
Rehearsals are held on campus in air conditioned dorm rooms and recording sessions at multiple, state of the art, award winning studios.
Each musician receives an audio CD of their studio session - a first for many kids. Instrument and equipment rentals can be arranged.
