What Parents and Students Have To Say

U-Rock Camps & Showcases

Rock camps and showcases are available for kids, teens and adults throughout the year, regardless of level

U-Rock camp weekend is a fantastic way for students to see progress from their lessons in action.

For nearly two decades, the U-Rock Camp has been a positive, life-changing experience for kids, teens, and adults. The confidence and life skills students develop are carried forward, beyond camp.

Students learn how and when to lead, coach, and work in a collaborative, team environment. This comes from having to set a goal (the songs the students will play together) and meet it within only two days. All of this is achieved in a positive, fun atmosphere where friendships are formed and creativity is inspired.

Warren Music Academy also hosts student showcases throughout the year, where students who are interested in performing live can see their developing skills and the work they have been putting into their instrument come to life, when students get to perform live in front of an audience! Showcase venues vary throughout the year.
