Wichita, KS -

School of Rock Wichita has announced their annual Rock Music Summer Camps set for June and July 2014. These rocking summer camps are open to kids ages 7-18 with all levels of music experience, from beginners to experts. Whether your instrument of choice is bass, guitar, piano/keyboard, drums or your own voice, School of Rock's summer camps offer an exciting opportunity to learn new music and play with a group.

School of Rock Wichita is offering two different types of Summer Camps this year: Rock Camp and Recording/Writing Camp. During the Rock Camps, students will learn a set of songs and practice as a group. At the end of the camp, the students will put on a real rock concert. At the Recording/Writing Camp students write songs together. At the end of the camp they record their original songs. For songwriting camp, students need to have some experience with their instrument and also a basic interest in writing and recording music.

The dates for the 2014 Summer Camps are:

- 10 Day Summer Camp: Monday, June 9 - Friday, June 20

- 5 Day Rock Camp: Monday, July 7 - Friday, July 11

- Recording/Writing Camp: Monday, July 14 - Friday, July 25

All School of Rock Wichita Summer Camps start at 10 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. each day. Teachers will be available both before and after camp start times each day to accommodate early drop-offs and late pick-up needs.
