Year after year,  Contemporary Music Center’s Rock Camp receives national recognition and is considered one of the best music camps in the country. CMC’s Rock Camp has become known for its unique quality and the experience it provides to students.

Rock Camp comes in two varieties – Summer Rock Camp and Rock-Camp 2.0.

Contemporary Music Center’s Secret Weapon

As the one who oversees CMC’s Rock Camp, Menzie Pittman, the founder of Contemporary Music Center, shares his unique experience from twenty-five years of performing around the country. Every detail is handled as it would be in the pros.

Menzie also draws on his successful teaching career and his success as a published author of The New Musician.

Rock Camp National Recognition

CMC’s Rock Camp program won a cover story in Music Inc. Magazine, titled “The King of Rock Camp”.

CMC’s Rock Camp program was cited as the standard for the industry to follow. CMC’s Rock Camp program and music lessons program helped CMC win the honors of NAMM Dealer of the Year.

From the Teaching Staff to the Smiles on the Musician’s Faces

Every step before the concert is reviewed so that the experience of our budding rock stars is extraordinary. The musicians own the process from day one. Working with top flight instructors, the musicians choose the material and develop the style and presentation of the band. They are coached on what makes an ensemble work and sound good, and they are also coached on what doesn’t work. CMC teaches the visual aspect of performance and helps the musicians understand how to develop a marketing strategy, but most importantly, we teach the understanding of how to relax and have fun with music. The most common response received from our musicians is, “That was the best time I had all summer.”
