Rock Band Camp

Rock Band Camp

Rock Band Summer Camp with Richards Guitar Studio and Richards Rock Academy is held at ValleyPoint Church in Glen Mills, PA. The facility has a stage, state of the art PA system, offices for private lessons, and a kitchen / lounge area. Students learn songs, technique, instrument repair, songwriting, improvising, audio equipment setup and use, and much more.

Last year’s camp was a big success, and the result was a concert performance by the student band “City Witch” of Running Down A Dream by Tom Petty, Buddy Holly by Weezer, I Love Rock and Roll by Joan Jett, an original song by the band, and a killer blues jam!

For full information, go to the camp page here.
