Power Chord Academy™, the nation’s leading summer camp for amateur and pre-professional musician training, is excited to announce it will be offering Summer Rock N Roll Sessions in Boston at Stonehill College!
Power Chord Academy’s executive director, Jonathan Newkirk, states, “We’ve always loved Boston in terms of its music scene and diverse array of teenage musicians. Power Chord Academy looks forward to bringing these musicians together at Stonehill College, where they can have fun playing in a band while also learning the ins-and-outs of the music industry from leading professionals. It’s important that teen musicians in a city like Boston get their summer rock experience tailored to their musical style. This is because PCA supports young rock artists in today’s emerging music scene, from punk to grunge, from metal to classic rock. We love what we do and truly enjoy helping young, aspiring rock stars achieve their dream!”
In addition to Boston, Power Chord Academy is also running in New York, San Diego, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, Washington DC, Miami, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Atlanta.
Summer 2010 marks the 12th year of our original program, and promises to be our biggest, most exciting summer ever with expanded facilities, renowned recording and video production, amazing mystery guests, and Power Chord Academy’s world-class staff!
