Tyler Spuzzillo APSU Rock Band Camp

Austin Peay State University’s Community School of the Arts will host its first-ever Rock Band Camp this summer.

One camp will be on June 28-July 2 and one will be on July 19-23. The camps will be from 1-4 p.m. at the APSU Music/Mass Communication Building. All proficient instrumentalists or vocalists ages 10-17 are welcome to attend.

At the camp, students will be placed in their own rock band (from three to six members) based on their music taste/interest.

Then students will learn to operate, organize and create a functioning rock band in masterclasses, music workshops and rehearsals, with a short concert for friends and family on the last day of the camp.

“This week-long summer camp gives students the experience of being in a rock band ensemble,” CSA Coordinator Dawn Martin Dickins said. “Each student will rehearse and perform in a rock band in addition to learning related topics such as equipment handling, technique and overall musicianship.”

Tyler Spuzzillo, a current APSU graduate student in music education, will teach the camp.

The camp costs $150 to attend. To register or find more information, visit this page.
