The camp is open to most instruments and vocalists. One of the primary goals of the camp is to take students who have been taking private or school band lessons on various instruments and getting them into an ensemble-playing situation. Mr. Hetfield's Rock and Roll summer camp is a place for them to meet and play with other young musicians.
There is no formal audition, but campers need to have a rudimentary knowledge of their instrument. All interested guitarists should know basic chords (i.e. G, C , D , E, A major and minor) and a scale pattern or two. Drummers should have some familiarity with a drum set, etc. Keyboard players should be at least graduated to level two. Saxes and trumpets and other wind instruments are always welcome.
July 7: The 2020 Rock & Roll Summer Camp is Cancelled. I am so sorry, but the schools where I hold the camp are closed in our district.
I have opened up the registration for next year's camp. So if you're interesed in attending in 2021, you can register using the links above.
Thank You for Your Support,
Walter L. Hetfield
