Running for over two decades now, Mr. Hetfield's 2020 Rock and Roll Summer Camp in Rehoboth Beach Delaware begins on July 20, 2020 and continues through July 31, 2020. The camp is open to aspiring rock and roll musicians from ages 8 to 16. Mr. Hetfield's Rock and Roll Summer Camp is run by director Walt Hetfield
. Mr. Hetfield has been the music teacher at Rehoboth Elementary School for the past twenty-five years. He is also an active rock and roll musician
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.
Covid19 update: Mr. Hetfield's Rock and Roll Summer Camp is still planned to take place during the last two weeks of July at Rehoboth Elementary School. If by chance that we are not able to hold it there, I will try to secure another site. If the camp cannot be held at all, naturally all money including deposits will be fully refunded.
I realize that this is a difficult time for everyone, but I am trying to be hopeful about our prospects for holding the camp this summer. We might have to be flexible as far as performing venues etc. I am hopeful that by July the current situation will have improved. Of course, I would never put my students, staff, or myself at risk, so I am going to take all necessary precautions. As I stated earlier, I am trying to be hopeful and I hope you are too.
Thank You for Your Support,
Walter L. Hetfield
