Band Camp gets better with every year Rahbek and Andrew facilitate this opportunity for teen musicians. This year the campers added to their experience by performing at a live venue in the city.
Band Camp is a creative journey, in which young musicians will learn the ins and outs of the music business, through experiencing a week in the life of a recording artist. Students will get a chance to: write music, work with a band, learn branding and marketing, record in a professional studio, and perform. Facilitated by Andrew, Rahbek, Tara and Kuba, Bowtown’s Band Camp is a great opportunity for music enthusiasts to get a glimpse into the world of professional musicians.
