For kids who dream of being in a rock band, or those who just love to jam, there's a summer camp in Ladner.
Guitar Marty's ninth annual Summer Rock Camp begins the third week of June and ends with a performance in November at the Ladner Community Centre, a show that has come to be a community event.
Young guitar players, bassists, drummers, keyboard players and singers from the tween/teen set will be put together in the week-long camps with kids of similar abilities.
The budding musicians will learn everything from the mechanics of becoming a band and learning new songs together to choosing a band name and how to command a stage.
Typically, each band will learn and practice a repertoire of three to five songs to perform on the final night.
Registration is now open at guitarmarty. com.
Videos from past Guitar Marty shows can be seen on YouTube at youtube.com/guitarmarty.
