Rock Camp

Toronto’s Best Rock Camp Turns the Spotlight On Your Kid

Toronto Rock Camp BandToronto Music Camp (TMC) is a unique summer music camp in Toronto where kids ages 8-11 and 12-16 come to up their game as musicians, learn to play in a rock band, produce a music video, and rub elbows with some of city’s top music talent. They do this under the guidance of our expert instructors in jam-packed weekly sessions.

Experience the Life of a Musician
This is a once in a lifetime experience (unless you come again) where kids can experience what it is like to be a full-time musician. Camp group sizes are small too, so budding rock stars get a real in-depth experience.

Join a Rock Band
Instead of the haphazard summer jam band in your garage, campers will be in a structured environment where they will practice daily with the band and receive mentoring from some of the leading music teachers in Toronto.

Star In a Music Video
This is the climax of the week. All week long, Rock Camp members are hard at work getting ready for the big day. At the end of the week, campers meet with a videographer and professional sound engineer to produce a music video. The videos are immortalized on our YouTube channel where we get thousands of views a year.

Perform Live
The Rock Camp bands will all get the chance to rock the house in their first public appearance at some of city’s coolest venues. Performances may occur during the same week of camp or later during the summer as part of a larger event.

Write Music
TMC wants to build the next generation of musicians. Campers are given the opportunity to compose their own tunes as a band during our songwriting sessions and receive feedback from our teachers.

Cover the Greats
Campers pick their favorite covers to rehearse and perform live and in video. Some of our Rock Camp bands have done renditions of the Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin, The Beatles and Nirvana. You know, real rock.

Learn From the Best
TMC is led by professional musicians and experienced teachers. In these 5 days, campers get individual instruction on their instrument, as well as warm up techniques, maintenance, and music production. We also arrange special workshops on topics ranging from instrument maintenance to stylistic techniques, drawing from a pool of real Toronto rock bands like The Responsables, Ninja Funk Orchestra, Yuka, Will Conquer and other local legends.

About Rock Camp

Toronto Rock Camp KidThe Toronto Music Camp was established by Elite Music Academy in 2005 as a way of expanding our students’ music experience. Today, the Rock Camp provides kids with the opportunity to jam, network, and unleash their inner musician through a variety of tailored workshops, clinics and instruction. Groups are very small, so our music teachers can build on existing skills and develop each camper as an individual musician while coaching their work inside a band. Our hands-on teaching style is what makes TMC the best rock camp experience in Toronto – and one of the city’s coolest summer arts camps.

Who it’s For
Rock Camp is a summer music camp in Toronto for kids ages 8-16 who already play guitar, bass, sax, keyboards, drums or voice. Each summer, we separate campers into two groups: 8-11 year olds and 12-16 year olds.

Location
Our summer camps run at both Elite Music Academy’s locations: 822 Danforth Ave and 2007 Danforth Ave. We will also utilize the downstairs lounge at Fox & Fiddle for our weekly performances and workshops. We will notify registrants of their location prior to the start of camp. Rock camp runs from 9am to 4pm. For more information call 416-406-5355.

Voice Camp

Toronto’s Coolest Voice Camp

Music Camp TorontoVoice Camp provides an opportunity for campers ages 8-16 years old to get a feel for life as a working musician. Campers are paired up with a small group at the beginning of camp and together they create their band name, receive tailored instruction, rehearse, compose and record.

Star in a Music Video
This is every camper’s favorite part. Everything they do in camp builds up to shooting the music video at the end of the week. Under the guidance of camp counselors, our professional sound engineer and expert videographer, campers decide the song, scenery and any other artistic direction they want to come up with. They then immortalize their hard work with a creative music video that will live forever on our YouTube channel. No other summer arts camp in the city does this!

Perform Live on Stage
We create opportunities for all of our music campers to perform around Toronto. Voice groups can be paired with groups from our Rock Camp to create a different dynamic and stretch their musical wings. We also produce student shows throughout the summer, giving everyone a chance to hog the spotlight. In the past, we’ve even held reunion shows in the middle of the school year.

Join a Voice Group
Kids are welcomed into a casual, structured environment where they are grouped with 4-5 other dedicated singers to practice and receive mentoring from some of the leading music teachers in the city. Every year dozens of lasting friendships are formed at TMC.  Some kids have even formed their own bands after our summer camp ends.

Write a Song
Groups are taught how to compose their own music during our songwriting sessions. During these sessions, they try their hand at songwriting and receive feedback from our teachers. If they choose to, they can record their own composition during their professional video shoot.

Cover Their Favourite Artists
Each group selects any song to rehearse and perform in their music video. In recent years, Voice Camp groups have covered everyone from Michael Jackson to Bob Marley, and have even compiled creative mash-ups that blend The Beatles, Joan Jett, and other artists.

Get an Elite Music Education
Every one of our students gets individual and group lessons from Toronto’s top vocal talent and special clinics with local working musicians. While they are here, they will learn more vocal warm ups, work on perfecting their pitch and learn about group dynamics.

About Voice Camp

Voice Camp TorontoToronto Music Camp was established as an answer to the amount of kids who let their music lessons slide over the summer in favor of lounging around. Instead of watching our students set themselves back, Elite Music Academy created an exceptional summer camp experience. We are the only music camp to provide a dedicated Voice Camp, which ensures that vocalists get the same level of instruction that instrumental musicians get in our Rock Camp. The result is a completely different camp where budding singers can develop their voice and technique. Our expert instruction and laid-back environment has made Toronto Music Camp one of the most sought after summer arts camps in the city.

Who It’s For
Voice Camp is perfect for 8-16 year-olds who have been singing for at least a year. Typically, we group kids together by ages 8-11 and 12-16.

Where It’s Located
Our summer camps run at both Elite Music Academy’s locations: 822 Danforth Ave and 2007 Danforth Ave. We will notify registrants of their location prior to the start of camp. Voice camp runs from 9am to 4pm daily. For more information call 416-406-5355.
