Pop Star Camp 2017
I wrote last year about how much I wish I had gone to a camp like our Pop Star Camp when I was younger, and I am happy to announce that, while my days of going to summer camp are long gone, we will be presenting our 2017 Pop Star Camp!
In many ways, the camp will keep the trusted format we’ve been using for the last two years. Campers will be choosing a song that they would like to sing, and will be working that week to get it prepared for a final performance at the end of the camp. There will be microphone technique, working on stage presence and performing, as well as tackling one of the toughest issues for a lot of performers: stage fright. And we’ll go out with a bang as campers perform for their friends and family backed by a live band.
But we have some different aspects of the camp this year as well. One of those is that the camp will be in a new performance space. It will be our own venue that will have a more “pop star” feel and that we will have the freedom to use in a way that best fits our performers. It will feel like a sold-out concert when they get the chance to get up and sing at the end of the week. Along with expanding the one-on-one time with vocal coaches, we will be exploring more ways to take performances up to the next level, and will be incorporating more media aspects into the camp. We also will be adding a second performance on a Sunday, where campers will share the stage with our Studio M performers.
This is a great opportunity for anyone who was in our ASP classes during the school year to keep singing over the summer, and a great way for our Studio M members to get some more one on one and solo experience. And if you’re already studying privately with one of our great teachers, here is a chance to get a song learned and ready and performed in a week, which can help you learn a lot about yourself as a singer.
We hope to see you at our Pop Star Camp over the summer! If you would like more information, you are welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call or text me at 714-747-6966. I’d love to talk to you more about our camp, and help you get signed up!
