Are you ready to rock?! Summer Jams offers aspiring rockers and musicians with some experience a chance to perform in a group with new friends, play songs by your favorite artists or work on your own original songs. Learn recording basics under the guidance of instructor Joey Pierog, a professional touring musician, and other members of our talented faculty. Open to guitar, bass, keyboard, drums*, and voice students. One year of lessons or equivalent experience recommended.
Each day includes band practice, instrument technique classes, electives (songwriting, recording, music business, listening and analysis classes, and more), faculty spotlight performances and masterclasses, and a combined jam band of all program participants. Take the stage in a final concert for family and friends.
Meet Joey and learn about his plans for the program!
