Students invited to ‘rock out’ during Camp Rock

FOSAA sponsors summer music program


The Friends of St. Augustine Amphitheatre (FOSAA) and Eclipse Recording Studios have teamed up to launch Camp Rock, a five-day camp in which children can work with professional musicians to learn the dynamics of playing in groups.

To be held July 11-15 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the amphitheatre, Camp Rock is designed for middle and high school students with some experience singing or playing guitar, bass, keyboard or drums. Students will work under the direction of Jim Stafford of Eclipse Recording Studios, along with professional local musicians before being placed in “combos” to help them learn group dynamics.

On the final day of camp, the students will perform in their combos for family and friends. The next week, they’ll record their songs in Eclipse Recording Studios and receive a CD.

An application and more information can be found at The cost of tuition for the week is $200. Scholarships are available.
