REGISTER NOW FOR ROCK CAMP USA – QUAD CITIES
2013 SESSIONS AT RIVER MUSIC EXPERIENCE (RME)

Now heading into its 18th year in 2013, Rock Camp USA is one of the country's top summer music camps, offering participants a once in a lifetime experience. Rock Camp USA was founded in 1995 by renowned Austin, TX guitarist Dave Sebree, who also founded the Austin School of Music the same year. Each camp is two weeks long and culminates with our young rockers giving a live performance, in a professional live music venue – such as the Redstone Room at the River Music Experience (RME) right here in the Quad Cities. 2013 marks RME's 8th year as a national affiliate of Rock Camp USA. Rock Camp USA - Quad Cities 2013 is made possible only through the generosity of our sponsors: Mediacom/OnMedia, West Music Company, and The HAVlife Foundation, and is produced by the River Music Experience (RME).


The Rock Camp USA experience goes far beyond just learning how to play a few rock songs with friends and other players, but delivers life lessons about working with others towards a common goal of creating, rehearsing and performing music as an artistic unit. Students rehearse for two weeks, record their dress rehearsal, and then perform live to a full house in the Redstone Room for family, friends and fans. The icing on the cake is when they receive a professionally-edited DVD of the show from Mediacom, as well as when the concerts air on Mediacom Connections Channel 22!

Rock Camp USA activities include:
Forming a band - picking your own material - rehearsing like pros - option to write your own original songs - refining your skills - taking home a CD recording of your dress rehearsal and a DVD of your final concert performance – improving teamwork abilities - working with seasoned area musicians and veteran Rock Campers – and performing live in a state-of-the-art venue.

Rock Camp USA franchises across the country have included: Austin, TX, Fort Worth, TX, Rio Grande Valley, TX, Davenport, IA, Chicago, IL, New York, NY, Poughkeepsie, NY, Miami, FL, and Hawaii. National sponsors include Fender, D'Addario, Sabian, Planet Waves, Vic Firth, PreSonus, and Evans Drumheads. Fender Passport sound systems for Rock Camp USA rehearsals in the Quad Cities are provided by our friends at West Music Company.
