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, group lessons, gigs, team building, jam sessions, creating, collaborating, and performance. And lunch.
AMP Summer Camp 2020 will tentatively be held in Palm Desert, CA from Monday, July 6th - Friday, July 24th. The Final Showcase will be on Saturday, July 26st. 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 for 3 weeks of AMP Summer Camp is $1900. However, AMP has worked with community sponsors to bring the tuition cost down to $999 for our three-week program. We are happy to extend Tuition Assistance to families who need it to work towards our goal of accepting all students who are qualified to attend, regardless of financial situation. Feel free to contact us with any concerns - we want to make it work. firstname.lastname@example.org
AMP Summer is open to all musicians in the Coachella Valley going into 6th-12th grade, and acceptance is selective. See below for details on how to sign up.
