  • Neil Minet, Rock Camp Alumni and Professional Performer,

    Rock Camp gave me the opportunity to begin my professional music career and made me into the musician I am today. Not only was I forced to step onto the stage to perform live, but in doing so I had to learn how to work with other musicians and accept feedback from peers and mentors. This program also introduced me to the world of networking, and built connections that I still have to this day. I can't speak highly enough about, it as I wouldn’t have the success that I do without it. Thank you!

  • Shane Patterson, Rock Camp Alumni and Professional Performer,

    I’ve had all sorts of musical training throughout my life- years and years of it. However, Rock Camp was the first program that taught me what it is actually like to be in a band, working together with other musicians and trying to create original music on your own. Then [the camp] goes even a step further and they take you on gigs. You learn real fast what kind of work goes into actually being in a band, first hand and through experience.
