AMP Summer Camp
Our mission is to connect young musicians in the Coachella Valley with a music education in styles that they are passionate about and to help build an up-and-coming local scene of young professional musicians.
AMP Summer Camp is an intensive music performance and music industry program for students entering grades 6 through 12 living in the Coachella Valley. The program focuses on playing in bands, instrumental/vocal/stage skills, collaboration, creativity, and performance. AMP holds a weeks-long summer camp, led by qualified and passionate band coaches, operates through small ensemble-based learning...aka "rock bands." Musicians are put into bands and then expected to work with their band to create original music and cover songs to develop a performable setlist, led by our experienced and passionate band coaches. AMP Camp involves challenging and fun days of workshops, masterclasses, gigs, team building, jam sessions, creating, collaborating, and performance. And lunch.
AMP Summer Camp 2018 will be held in Indio, CA (location TBA) from Monday, June 25th - Friday, July 20th. The Final Showcase will be on Saturday, July 21st. No camp on Wed, July 4th. Camp days run from 10am-5pm, and include lunch. Accepted students are expected to attend all of camp.
AMP is a non-profit program whose leadership and donors strive to serve all qualified young musicians in the Coachella Valley, regardless of financial situation. We are proud to offer a totally unique and quality contemporary music experience that leaves young musicians more confident and self-assured in many ways. The value-per-student and suggested donation for our 4-week camp is $2000. However, AMP will work with all families to offer scholarships so that ALL accepted students will be able to attend, regardless of financial situation. Feel free to contact us with any concerns - we want to make it work. firstname.lastname@example.org
