We are excited to announce the 2024 fun-filled and unique summer program for rising 7-12 graders who are interested in improving their musicianship, exploring music composition, recording and production, and learning about music careers. This program offers a great opportunity for students to develop their musical abilities, learn from experienced professionals in the music industry, music educators, and connect with other like-minded students.

Our program includes a range of activities, such as music technology and instrumental workshops, improvisation, jam sessions, music production, and discussions with visiting recording artists. Join us this summer and take your music skills to the next level!

The workshops are conducted in partnership with the University of Maryland School of Music, and the MNCPPC Department of Parks and Recreation, Prince George’s County, and are conducted Monday – Friday, 9am – 4:30pm.

Music Technology

This workshop incorporates competencies that are required to succeed in the 21st century i.e., critical thinking, complex problem solving, and learning how to use technologies and software related to actual music production, including music composition, editing, synthesizing, and recording. 

Master Instructors train and mentor students to compose, produce, mix, and master music using industry standard software and state of the art hardware.

Music Technology Bootcamp

A place to kickstart your creative engine.  Students will spend the week in a state-of-the-art technology lab, where they will learn the fundamentals of audio recording, create original music from scratch in professional recording software, dive into different genres and styles, and collaborate with one another as they explore their own sound as young music producers.

Instrumental Music Workshops

(All Instruments)

There are two sections in this workshop, Middle School (7-8 grade) & High School (9-12 grade), where students will receive small group lessons and sectionals, and jam with a band.

Participants will explore various scales, chord scales, and modes to expand their capacity to improvise.  Students will also explore, but not limited to, jazz styles:  the various jazz styles:

  • Historically Significant Jazz Recordings
  • Blues
  • Jazz-Rock
  • Latin Jazz
  • Jazz Standards
  • Cool Jazz

All workshops are held Monday through Friday, from 9 am – 4:30 pm for a total of 37.5 hours.  Materials are included.  A camp T-shirt must be worn during the camp.  Students can elect to participate in a different workshop each week.

Students will plan, organize, and implement a closing program open to families, sponsors, and members of the community. Students receive a certificate of completion at the end of each workshop.
