The Youth Music Project is breaking out the face paint, studded jackets and platform boots for a week of KISS. Inspired by the earth shattering tunes of the late 70’s, students at YMP’s KISS Kamp will discover firsthand what it’s like to turn it way up in style and volume. A rock band infused with a distinct performance edge will set the stage for dudes and chicks of all levels to learn the basics or to hone their already rockin’ skills.
New musicians will learn basic chords, drum beats and vocals in true KISS style, while also practicing rock and roll basics like keeping time, performing as a band, and perfecting stage presence. Musicians with a little more experience will hop right into learning the ways of KISS; their style, sound and what makes the band so unique. All classes are taught by YMP’s skilled instructors. After students jam for a bit, they will design their own stage character just like Starchild, Catman and the gang. Students will also have the opportunity to design their own black and white makeup style as well as screenprint their own band t-shirt (along with numerous other art activities). By the end of camp, students will want to “Rock and Roll All Nite.”
