NYC Rock Camp Banner

July 17-21, 2017

in Bushwick, Brooklyn


NYC Rock Camp is a teaching artist-powered week of music, creativity, and making noise—a safe space of radical self-expression, collaboration, and performance, where young people are empowered to trust themselves, their voices, and each other. 

NYC Rock Camp is open to all youth, regardless of their ability to pay. To help us sustain our model of sliding scale tuition, please consider giving to our Generosity Campaign

Over the course of one week, campers:

  • attend instrument instruction in guitar, bass, drums, vocals, or keys
  • participate in workshops like Rock Photography, Recording, or Do-It-Yourself Merch Making
  • collaborate in band practice, guided by two Band Coaches
  • compose an original song
  • perform with their bands at the Camper Showcase on the Sunday after camp week 
  • engage with group activities and discussions, to connect music to daily themes of community, culture & identity, do-it-yourselfprotest, and social responsibility.
