Rokstra gives students a music camp experience they’ll never forget
In our Music Camps, students pick up instruments and start playing as a band, ultimately ending the music camp by performing a live show for their friends and families.
WORK HARD. PLAY HARD.
Live the music
Campers have the opportunity to record one song during each week of camp at a professional recording studio, and each week of camp includes attending a live rock and roll concert at a major performance venue.
A different type
