Rock Camps, Workshops, Student Showcases and More!

Guitar Lessons Schenectady

Even a complete beginner can join our U-Rock weekend camp.

U-Rock Camp weekends are available for teens as well as adults.

U-Rock Camp weekend is a fantastic way for students to see the progress from their guitar, bass, drums, piano, or voice lessons.

For nearly two decades, the U-Rock Camp has been a positive, life-changing experience for kids, teens, and adults. Learning how and when to lead, coach, and/or follow comes from having to set a goal (the songs the students will play together) and meet it in a short time. All of this is achieved in a positive, fun environment where friendships are formed and creativity is inspired!

What to Expect:

  • Know what it’s like to play on-stage with other musicians, with lights and a fog show!
  • Develop professional rehearsal/prep skills that carry beyond the music.
  • Form a band with other musicians of similar age, experience, and style.
  • Learn when to lead, coach and follow within a group, while tasked with a deadline.

When do the Camps take place?

  • U-Rock Camp runs throughout the year for Kids, Teens, and Adults.
  • Kids and Teen Weekend Camps are held throughout the year.
  • Dates vary and will be announced to students at the lesson studio.
  • In addition to camps, we offer various workshops on different topics throughout the year! Information and updates are posted at the lesson studio.
  • Student Showcases are also hosted throughout the year, where students who wish to perform can put their developing music chops to action, and get to perform in front of a live audience! This is for students who wish to participate. Showcase venues vary throughout the year. Contact us or ask during lessons to learn more!
