Recording Arts Camp
July 17 – July 22, 2023
Modesto Sound’s Recording Arts Summer Camp meets from 10am to 2pm for a week culminating with a free public concert on Saturday. It teaches communication and fosters creativity through songwriting and music appreciation, specifically through the actions of speaking, writing, recording, listening, editing, evaluating, and working in small groups.
Our program cultivates the development of transferable life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, creative expression, and collaboration. The campers learn about two theaters located at, and the technical behind-the-scenes of, the area’s largest creative arts and performances venue: the Gallo Center For The Arts. Camp staff provide lessons on how the Gallo Center sets up during theater shows as well as how to set up a stage for a musical performance, including running the cables and plugging in microphones, amps, speakers and instruments. The program includes opportunities to write original songs, including lessons on the fundamental aspects of songwriting, while working in small groups of different instrumentalists; through this process, campers build upon their interpersonal and teamwork skills.
Recording Arts Camp 2023 dates are Monday, July 17th through Saturday, July 22nd. The cost is $200. Full and partial scholarships are available.
