Bowtown Music Band Camp

Band Camp is a creative journey, in which young musicians learn the intricacies of the music business, experiencing a week in the life of a recording artist. Students write music, learn branding/marketing, record in a professional studio, and perform for a live audience. Bowtown Music Band Camp runs in August of each year. 

About Band Camp

Band Camp is a one-week program hosted in August by Bowtown Music. Running from Monday to Friday, each day begins at 10 am and ends at 4 pm. Campers will be divided into groups based on age and ability. Each band will have at least one instructor working with them. The bands will then create an original composition, rehearse and record. Campers will create a band name, a logo, and promo art. Each member will receive a copy of the CD in a case with covers designed by the group. Campers will be introduced to a variety of instruments, musical genres and history, jamming and how a recording studio operates. On Saturday, the bands will perform for their families at a local venue in Calgary.

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; Andrew Balboa, Rahbek Solomons, and Tara Stiles.
