This March Break, 24 students will transform into rock stars with the help of real life band Speed Control. It’s all part of the Fredericton Playhouse’s Rawk Camp, running March 5-7.

With two camps to choose from depending on age and skill level, Rawk Camp is perfect for those who have never played an instrument, AND for those who are looking to develop their existing skills.

The Rawk Starts Here is intended for beginner rockers ages 9-12. The goal of this camp is for kids to develop a love of music and learn to have fun while performing with other musicians. The camp includes group lessons on individual instruments, including guitar, drums, bass, keyboard and vocals. No previous experience is required; participants will be grouped into rock bands with the goal of having one to three songs ready to perform by the end of the camp.

For more advanced rockers ages 13 and upRawk Harder, Rawk Smarter offers the opportunity to learn how to be in a band, how to make the most of rehearsal time and how to engage onstage with band-mates to create a great show. Participants in this camp will learn arranging and performance skills to create powerful and interactive sets, while working in groups according to skill level. Students should have around two to three years of solid playing experience and lessons. By the end of the camp, participants will have three to four songs ready to perform.

Both groups will work with Speed Control, a Yukon-based rock trio that’s been compared to the likes of Nirvana and the Police. When they’re not bringing audiences to their feet with their fast, powerful brand of music, Speed Control is dedicated to furthering music education, working with kids across the country.

Both Rawk Camps run from March 5-7 at the Fredericton Playhouse. The Rawk Stars Here will run from 10 a.m.-12 p.m., while Rawk Harder, Rawk Smarter will take place from 1-3 p.m.  All participants will perform during a special showcase on Friday, March 7.

Spots are limited to 12 participants per camp. Instruments can be provided if required.
