Camp Details

Songwriting 101 is the ideal camp for kids looking to learn all of the basics of songwriting. If your child loves music, writing and/or telling stories, this is the camp for them. Campers will spend an entire week learning how to turn a simple thought or idea into an entire song, while making new friends and music. This “how to” camp will cover creating lyrics, picking a title for their song, expressing emotions, determining song form, and more. There’s no better way to end the summer than hearing your kid’s very first original song. *PRO TIP: If your student really wants to take their music to new heights, we recommend taking Aspiring Artists Camp alongside Songwriting 101!

What You Can Expect

ROOTS is a fun, engaging and safe place for students of all ages to learn the art of music. We are a performing arts academy that’s designed to teach with excellence and committed to empowering our students to do their best.

The ROOTS Philosophy

ROOTS was created to give students of all ages a chance to explore what’s possible in the world of performing arts. Whether it’s music lessons, dance classes or summer camps, we build all of our programs around the same three foundations:

1. Creativity

We believe every student possesses a unique gift of creativity. Our mentors tailor each experience to help students to foster, uncover and explore their creative and problem-solving potential.

2. Discipline

Journalist and bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell popularized the idea that it takes roughly 10,000 hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field. At ROOTS, we are committed to instilling discipline in our students to achieve their highest potential.

3. Performance

We are committed to teaching our students to perform at their best. Whether that’s in a recital, concert or a performance event, our students will be coached on self-awareness, presentation and audience engagement.

This is our philosophy and our promise to you.


Staff

The ROOTS camp staff includes a dedicated group of vetted and experienced teachers. Most are year-round ROOTS mentors, but some have been hired specifically for their camp because of their expertise in the summer camp topic.

All lessons, classes, and camps are lead by instructors that we purposely call “mentors.”

We take the responsibility of training the next generation seriously.

Each mentor is trained and empowered to develop the student’s gifts and talents, but also to build trusted and reliable connections. We believe that if the students trust the environment and mentor, they will thrive and grow faster.
