NEW PORT RICHEY — Local community music school Mullins Music is offering two music camps for youths ages 12-18 this summer.
Rock Week, now in its seventh year, starts Monday and runs through Friday, said Eric Mullins, executive director of the music school.
The camp takes place on the campus of Genesis Preparatory School, 7710 Osteen Road.
Daily sessions, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., will culminate with a finale concert at 7 p.m. Friday.
Student musicians are put into bands mentored by a faculty member during the week. In addition to rehearsals, there are competitive games and music history and music theory lessons.
Next month, Mullins Music is adding a camp, Rock Studio, set for July 7-11 at Genesis Preparatory.
Rock Studio focuses on the art of recording, Mullins said. The week ends with each band recording a compact-disc album and performing at their own CD release party.
Students design and create the album and write original songs as well.
Tuition for Rock Week costs $189, while Rock Studio will cost $199. Students who sign up for both camps earn a 10 percent discount. Scholarships are available for families who need financial assistance.
