Amplify YOUR Summer with SCHOOL OF ROCK SUMMER CAMPS!!!!

School of Rock, KNOXVILLE offers summer, winter and spring break rock music camps, designed for musicians of all skill levels who play guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocals.
Through workshops, clinics, and private instruction, our comprehensive camp experience is designed to hone music performance and ensemble skills in a creative and fun environment. We know from experience that playing in a band situation speeds learning and creates “seasoned” musicians. Even relatively advanced musicians are amazed at the amount of progress they make when regularly playing with other musicians. Our performance Rock Camps are based on our world famous Performance Program where we believe there is no better way to teach music than the stage!! We have both half day and full day camps, and have several amazing specialty camps lined for DRUMS, BASS, VOCALS, & SONGWRITING!!
