Multiple dates from Thursday, April 12th to Monday, April 16th
RAWK CAMP -
Cranbrook is about to open its own School of Rock, but instead of Jack Black, kids will be coached in the art of plugging in their amps and letting it rip by a group of guys from the Yukon. Whitehorse-based band Speed Control will be at the Mount Baker Music Room adjacent to Key City Theatre April 12-16 to lead our second RAWK Camp, which is designed for kids and youth ages nine and up. This will be a great way to keep the kids occupied during their four day break.
Two programs are being offered based on students’ skill levels:
RAWK on Stage is for those with one or two years of music lessons behind them.
“The goal is to grab onto the love of music and learn how to have fun performing with other musicians,” said Speed Control members. “The camp will include group lessons on individual instruments: guitars, drums, bass, keyboards, and vocals. They will be grouped into rock bands, explore principles of mic technique and learn how to play to an audience by drawing the audience in with awesome on-stage presence.”
RAWK Harder, RAWK Smarter is for those with at least two years of solid lessons and playing experience. Students will learn how to be in a band, how to make the most of rehearsal time, and how to engage with fellow band mates on stage, as well as learn arranging and performance skills.
“We will work on song writing and touch on the business of music such as developing online strategies that will help you reach and grow your fan base,” said Speed Control.
Featuring Graeme Peters on guitar and vocals, Ian March on drums and Jody Peters on bass and vocals, Speed Control is a hard-hitting rock trio dedicated to furthering music education and bringing music into kids’ lives. With a full endorsement and partnership with Yamaha Canada, the band will provide students with instruments to play and equipment to power the camps.
A maximum of 10 participants will be accepted into each session. Registration Fee: $99
The camp culminates with Cranbrook RAWKS, a showcase performance by the students, open to the public at Key City Theatre April 16.
