SPONSORED POST: News Flash: 2019 is the perfect year to learn music. Bach to Rock Wellesley offers week-long music boot camps for the whole Summer, available to all ages and experience levels. We talked with our students and parents from years past and have updated and expanded some of our selections so that kids of all ages can Rock Out in no time! All are welcome here to learn, so call or stop in to find get more information about our camp programs.
Bach to Rock‘s camps are a combination of music fundamentals, instrument instruction, performance, and of course FUN! Music is inside all of us but sometimes we don’t know where to start. One of the biggest benefits of our camps is to get experience on different instruments so you can find “your own voice”. Our method is learning through doing not boring lectures or just a day camp, and each of our students leave having built up knowledge and enough experience to join a band, or start private lessons. There’s no experience or instruments needed (everything is already here), just the excitement and ambition to learn something new. Make 2019 the year you learn to express yourself with music.
Camp not your thing? We offer regular group classes as well as private lessons year round and are waiting to teach you!
