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 August 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. Finally 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 Priya Bosman.
