End-of-Camp 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.

Creative Process

“Acquainting oneself with the arts outside of a traditional classroom environment gives kids more autonomy in the creative process, which yields results that can be applied away from the studio.”
– From “9 Visual and Performing Art Summer Camps in New York City” by Savannah Cox, in DNAinfo.

Next Level

“While Replay also functions as rehearsal space for adult musicians, Mare and John the lovely owners, are always on site so there is never a worry about safety or supervision. Coming to Replay Friday afternoons is the highlight of my son’s week. If you are looking for a safe happy place where your young musician can take his craft to the next level, you just found it!”

Marian

Parent of a child in the Band Coaching program

Remarkable Progress

“John combines his expertise in drumming and teaching with a great sense of humor, which results in high quality, fun lessons. The progress my daughter made was remarkable. John’s lessons are above and beyond teaching technique and providing a solid base to build upon: his experience as a performer and attention to individual needs allowed for lessons specifically geared to prepare for upcoming performances.”

Stephanie

Parent of John Rubin’s drum student
