Rocking Out!
Rock Camp is a project of Portman’s Music Academy. It is based on a program that has been running for over 20 years.

Our Mission: To give young players the opportunity to learn to play the music they love in a band through qualified coaching in an atmosphere of mutual learning and respect.

We will explore the interests of the participants which may include all styles of music from indie to metal, classic rock to worship.


Please note: Rock camp participants must have a minimum of one year musical experience.

Rocking Out!
“I played in bands before, but not with guys this good. The concert felt like a real rock show with smoke and lights and so many people there to hear us. I have played in two bands since Rock Camp, and I’m coming back.”
-14 year old guitarist
