Do you play guitar, bass, drums, or keyboard? Are you a singer and want to be in a Rock Band? The School of the Performing Arts is forming its first rock band with ROCK CAMP, for students 10-14 years of age. Bring out the rocker in everyone!

ROCK CAMP will be held at the newly renovated state-of-the-art Universal Preservation Hall – Saratoga’s hottest new music venue.  This is a two week, full-day program where young musicians hone their skills, meet other young musicians, and learn from professional instructors as they:

  • Form a band with other young musicians
  • Write and arrange an original song
  • Learn cover versions of popular rock ‘n’ roll songs
  • Perform in concert at the UPH Grand Hall. 

ROCK CAMP will connect young musicians guiding them in collaboration while developing leadership skills, fostering self-esteem, and encouraging creative expression through music. 

If you are unsure whether ROCK CAMP is right for your child/student, please call us. We are happy to talk and help you decide what is best for your child/student.


The application is by electronic submission.

When is submission deadline: May 15, 2020

What do I need to submit?
