This summer give your aspiring young musician an opportunity of a lifetime. Musicology Performance Center and Vudu Studios present the “Song Writing / Recording Experience Summer Camp”. Join us for a two-week song writing and studio production summer experience featuring professional songwriters in a world class Vudu recording studio.

The first week will be held at The Musicology Performance Center, and will focus on writing, arranging and pre-production of original songs. Campers will collaborate to write songs focusing on music, lyrics, melodies, harmonies and arrangement. Under the guidance of our talented instructors, our campers will learn about what it takes to express their emotions and ideas through song, how to arrange the material and bring it to life. Campers get to bring their musical ideas, get real time feedback from professionals. On April 8th, we will also be treating the campers to a trip to Splish Splash.

Our second week will be held at Vudu Studios. Our campers get the experience of recording their newly written material in a state of the art professional studio where bands like Fuel, Skid Row, Brand New, The Pixies, At Tall As Lions and The Dear Hunter have recorded some of their best albums. Our campers will get hands on training and experience multi track live recoding in VuDu Studios with the incredibly talented Mike Watts guiding them through the recording process. Mike has been a producer for bands such as The Dear Hunter, As Tall as Lion, Gates and others. His extensive production and mixing work has been featured on various albums as well as film and television.

This is a absolutely unique opportunity for the aspiring musician, recording engineer or song writer to get a sense of how music is made today. Our campers not only walk away with an exciting experience, but they also get a professionally recorded CD of songs that will last a lifetime.
