Saturday Workshop for Teens

Camp Information

Dog House Music is excited to introduce its new Intensive Rock & Roll Workshop for Teens. This program is geared towards teen bands looking to develop their own material and play out locally. Whether you are an individual player, brand new band, or have been playing together already, these workshops will give you the opportunity to develop as a band, and start booking gigs.

Ages 11 – 17, intermediate to advanced players

Open to individuals or bands.

Bands will:

  • Write an original set list
  • Learn marketing/PR for bands
  • Make field trips
  • Hear guest speakers/musicians
  • Get booked in a local venue
Under the direction of our professional musical staff, students will write a full set of 8-10 original songs. Students will also attend seminars on marketing, the recording industry, band dynamics, and other topics relevant to musicians starting out their careers. After five weekend rehearsal sessions, students will be booked into gigs at local all-age venues, including the Fox Theatre in Boulder. Students will receive a digital recording of their live show, plus ongoing booking assistance through DHM’s Band Development and Promotion Program – free booking assistance and access to our extensive network of promotion contacts. Bands will also have the opportunity to audition for a spot at DHM’s Teen Stage during the Boulder Creek Festival 2012.
