Top 10 Reasons to ROCK OUT: #6


Dear Rock Star,

This week brings us to the #6 reason to attend Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp this fall:  A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words!  

At Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp you will get a ton of pictures - on stage, with the Rock Stars, and in studio!  Your rock camp pictures will continue to inspire you  long after camp is over.  I have a tool I call my “wall of motivation” – on this wall, I have pictures of  campers rocking out with my Rock Star friends - images that continue to inspire me in day to day business. PLUS pictures give you major bragging rights...

Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp Songs
Preparing for Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is almost as satisfying as the camp itself.  To better the rock camp experience, our Rock Star counselors have put together a great list of songs for campers to loosely learn before camp so we can hit the ground running...below please find the much anticipated list!!
If you’re a camper, have fun and don't worry about learning these songs inside and out! As you can see, we have divided the songs according to difficulty - so, beginner players don’t worry about learning the advanced songs!  Musicians of ALL experience levels are welcome at Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp.  After all many of the all time greatest rock songs are only 3 chords!

“Music has the power to uplift, heal and transform.  The Camp taps into the power of music in unprecedented ways by bringing together lovers of music from all walks of life and places them under the tutelage of counselors who are masters of music for the purpose of creating music. Then something magical happens. The music becomes the bond in a transformative discovery of self in the context of a group.  People learn to create under the guidance of creative masters.  Campers build bridges between one another as they perfect the art of communicating in the world’s oldest language: music.  The Camp is more than jamming, recording and playing live with the rock stars; it’s an experience that will change your life forever.”
