Replay Music Studios offers weeklong summer and holiday camps for the beginning or seasoned musician aged eight to 18.

Half-day sessions take place for a full week and are led by experienced, multi-instrumentalist band coaches.

The curriculum includes:
Learning Your Influences. Students share and listen to favorite songs while band coaches lead an exploration of musical genre, song form, arrangement, dynamics, and lyrical styles.
Playing Your Influences. Groups choose songs to learn and master. Students receive individual guidance and work on their parts in the group while focusing on tone, rhythm, harmony, technique, and lyrics.
Creating and Arranging Your Song. Drawing inspiration from the groups’ influences, band coaches help musicians create their own songs, working together to make choices about style, instrumentation, and final song structure. Students with songs and parts already in development are encouraged to bring their work in with them.
Recording and Performance. Students become familiar with recording their music and playing in front of an audience. By the end of the week, bands use Replay Music Studios’ one-of-a-kind audio/video system to capture high quality live sound and video–easily downloaded to share. Participants give a live performance for their family and friends.
Replay’s instructors place each young musician in a group suited to age and ability. Beginners are welcome. For more information, please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-235-7510.
