What a Camper Needs to Know

Eskil works with Anna Zuver and Aaron GordonWe accept players and singers in middle and high school, with playing and singing skills on a late beginner/intermediate (quick learner) through advanced levels. Remember, this is not a camp for those new to their instrument.

PLAYING EXPERIENCE GUIDELINES:

  • Guitar players should know their basic open chords and bar chords and know a little bit about scales and the notes on their fret boards. A knowledge of key relationships is also helpful.
  • Bass players should be able to play simple bass patterns in a steady fashion, and know a little about chord relationships.
  • Drummers should be able to keep a steady beat for a minimum of three minutes, and know the basic rock and blues patterns.
  • Keyboard players should know the basic chords in most keys, and have some knowledge of the relationship between keys.
  • Horn players should be able to play all 12 major scales. They will need to have their own instruments, and in good working condition.
  • Singers should be able to match pitch. Nerves of steel are helpful.

All campers should bring an eagerness to learn, a willingness to be creative, and a determination to do his or her best.

Policies on refunds and changes of session

REFUND POLICY

Atlanta Rock 'n Blues Camp [ARBC] is, above all, a place where students who love to play their instruments can learn to work together to form bands and perform the music they love. Ours is a band-centered camp, with individuals in each band contributing a unique set of skills, and whose absence would affect all other members of the band. It is this fact that drives our refund policy.

If a registration is cancelled before April 30, we will issue a full refund. Cancellations between May 1 and May 15 will result in a 50% refund. After May 15 no refunds will be given unless for a significant medical condition or death in the family. Cancelling players are, however, free to find an appropriate replacement player to take the spot and work out the fee between them.

CHANGING SESSIONS

There have been times when a camper has needed, or wished, to change sessions in order to conform to family plans, or to attend camp with friends. ARBC is glad to accommodate these changes when possible, however we cannot guarantee that a space will be available in the desired session. Wishing to change a session close to camp time can result in a band losing a necessary player, which makes any change especially difficult and in many cases, not feasible.
