Camp Electric Is Summer Camp For Aspiring Musicians

posted by Joanne Brokaw

CampElectric.JPGIf you’re an aspiring Christian music artist – whether you dream of playing in the band or being the frontman (or woman) – check out Camp Electric, the week-long rock and roll summer camp that offers instruction from some of the Christian music industry’s best artists and musicians.
The camp is held at Trevecca Nazarene University located in the heart of Nashville, TN and features a daily worship service, sessions for the entire camp group, and smaller sessions broken down into levels of experience for camper’s specific instrument. Each night ends with a concert from one of today’s top Christian bands.
Instructors include (you can see the entire list on the website):


Adam Nitti, bassist for Stephen Curtis Chapman
Dave Luetkenhoelter, bassist for Kutless
Rich Gilliland, bassist for Pillar
Brian Haley, drummer for tobyMac
Jeff Jones, drummer for Big Daddy Weave
Leif Skartland, drummer for Jeremy Camp
Zoro, drummer for Lenny Kravitz
Noah Henson, guitarist for Pillar
Preston Dalton, guiarist for SonicFlood
Dave Wyatt, keyboardist for tobyMac
Lucio Rubino, vocalist for Storyside:B
Anthony Evans
Mark Harris
Rachael Lampa
Rob Beckley
Is it a Christian music camp? The site explains:

“Camp Electric’s belief is that actual music (no lyrics) is amoral. That is, neither moral nor immoral. However, song lyrics have the ability to speak life or death. The main difference of our camp is that we encourage all of our students whether they are pursuing secular or Christian music to pursue their walk with Christ first. We actually encourage all types of music-Christian and secular. With that said, we also teach kids that the lyrics we meditate on and the artists we admire do matter. There will be no explicit lyrics at Camp Electric or admiration for artist that use them. “You wouldn’t put garbage in your mouth, so don’t put it in your mind.” All instructors at Camp Electric have personally given their testimony of Jesus Christ and seek to use their music to glorify Him.”

The camp is designed for teens 13 to 18. Registration is limited, as is housing. The dorms for the girls are already filled for the first camp session. There is a discount for early registration by February 28.
It’s been a long, long time since I was pricing summer camps for my own daughter, but even the early bird $750 registration price seems really expensive to me. But if you’re serious about music, I suppose a week-long session not only in rock-specific musical instruction but spiritual growth could be beneficial.

Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!
