2019 Summer Camps

Be A Summer Drummer!

Located in Newburyport’s historic Tannery Marketplace, the Drum Camp is a great way for kids to have fun and build their music skills over summer break. Our campers will spend time playing in our studio, with the opportunity to explore the Tannery, get snacks and shop during breaks!


Campers and teachers will work together to decide the most appropriate level. If you’re unsure what class you should be in, send a video and we can recommend which is best. The camp is open to middle school students and older.
The Intermediate Camp helps students build their skills and become proficient in grooves, speed, fills, reading, timing, soloing and listening across various styles.
The Advanced Camp builds on these basic skills to help the drummer grow their abilities and play prodigiously.
In both camps, drummers will have the opportunity to play privately as well as with a group, record a drum cover, and practice recording music.
