About Us

History

a young student sings and plays guitarThe idea for the Atlanta Rock 'n Blues Camp began in the spring of 2005. Micki Gonzalez was noticing that her son and his friends knew how to play their instruments really well, but had little idea how to join forces to create a band, how to practice, what songs would be best for their skill sets, etc. So she went to her son's teacher, "Chicago" Joe Jones. His approach to teaching and performing was uniquely designed to teach these skills, so we decided to start a camp for young musicians who wish to explore first hand the experience of being in a band and playing rock and roll, blues, and jazz.

Over the years, a stable set of performing and teaching professionals became part of the Atlanta Rock 'n Blues Camp experience. Their combination of patience, understanding and just plain "cool" makes them able to give the campers an intense and exhilarating experience learning how to perform together. We keep our camp small in order to have direct contact with all of the campers and meet their individual musical needs.

All of us at Atlanta Rock 'n Blues Camp are dedicated to the development of young musicians. Although we expect our campers to work hard during the week, we know that when they perform their program at the end of the week, the pride and excitement they and their parents will experience will make it all extremely worthwhile.
