Bowtown Music Band Camp
Band Camp is a creative journey in which young musicians learn the intricacies of the music business while providing them with the opportunity to experience a week in the life of a professional musician. Students will write their own music, learn branding/marketing, record in a professional studio, and perform for a live audience. If you are interested, Bowtown Music Band Camp runs in July of every year.
About Band Camp
Band Camp is a one-week program hosted by Bowtown Music that runs from Monday to Friday beginning each day at 10 am and ending at 4 pm. Throughout the week, campers will be introduced to a variety of instruments, musical genres, history, band experience, and will have the opportunity to work in a real recording studio. Campers will be divided into groups based on age and ability with each band having an instructer assigned to them. The groups will then create a band name, a logo, and promo art for their group, and then proceed to create an original composition, rehearse it, and, eventually, record it. Each member will receive a copy of their CD in a case with their original album art on it. *On the final Saturday of each week, the bands will perform for their families at KOI in downtown Calgary. (See dates below)
Band Camp is an exceptional opportunity for students who wish to strengthen their musical abilities, experience working as a team, learn about recording, and record their band’s sound.
Camp Leaders are; Rahbek Solomons, Priya Bosman and Eric Svilpis
