BookBlast Camp FAQS

What is BookBlast?????

It’s​ ​a​ ​4-day​ ​camp​ ​that​ ​meets​ ​for​ ​2​ ​hours​ ​each​ ​day.​ ​It​ ​focuses​ ​on​ ​learning​ ​new​ ​material,​ ​passing​ ​it,​ ​and then​ ​reviewing​ ​through​ ​the​ ​use​ ​of​ ​games.​ ​On​ ​top​ ​of​ ​that,​ ​we​ ​spend​ ​the​ ​extra​ ​time​ ​doing​ ​creative​ ​activities that​ ​really​ ​stretch​ ​the​ ​music​ ​muscles.

We’ve​ ​noticed​ ​some​ ​huge​ ​benefits​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Book​ ​Blasts​ ​and​ ​we’ve​ ​received​ ​positive​ ​feedback​ ​from​ ​parents,​ ​as well:

 

*​ ​We’ve​ ​seen​ ​students​ ​move​ ​through​ ​8​ ​weeks​ ​of​ ​material​ ​in​ ​just​ ​four​ ​days…​ ​Students​ ​feel​ ​a​ ​huge​ ​boost​ ​of confidence​ ​and​ ​motivation​ ​for​ ​making​ ​BIG​ ​gains​ ​in​ ​such​ ​a​ ​small​ ​amount​ ​of​ ​time!

*​ ​Kids​ ​love​ ​the​ ​fact​ ​that​ ​they​ ​don’t​ ​have​ ​to​ ​practice​ ​at​ ​home​ ​during​ ​this​ ​week…​ ​They​ ​come​ ​to​ ​the​ ​camp, practice​ ​with​ ​the teacher,​ ​and​ ​then​ ​relax​ ​for​ ​the​ ​rest​ ​of​ ​the​ ​day!

*​ ​It’s​ ​the​ ​right​ ​balance​ ​of​ ​work​ ​and​ ​play…​ ​each​ ​hour​ ​is​ ​divided​ ​up​ ​into​ ​group​ ​interaction,​ ​learning​ ​new songs,​ ​and​ ​review​ ​games.

*​ ​We’ve​ ​found​ ​that​ ​two​ ​hours​ ​of​ ​games,​ ​creativity,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​little​ ​practice​ ​is​ ​”just​ ​right”…​ ​you​ ​wouldn’t​ ​believe how​ ​many​ ​times​ ​we​ ​hear:​ ​“​It’s​ ​time​ ​to​ ​go​ ​already!?!?!?”​

*​ ​Students​ ​really​ ​stretch​ ​their​ ​creative​ ​muscles…​ ​we​ ​write​ ​music,​ ​have​ ​fun​ ​with​ ​ear​ ​training,​ ​and​ ​play games!

Who is BookBlast for?

Book​Blast​ ​is​ ​perfect​ ​for​ ​students​ ​who​ ​are​ ​level Prep A through level 5 in the Flourish Achievement Program, age 6 – 18. It is geared towards students already taking lessons, although you can attend as a beginner (though we also encourage you to check out our Jumpstart Camps!)

This is an activity your whole family can enjoy – students work independently at their own pace and level. You have the convenience of a great summer activity for everyone without running all over town!

Remember – students choose their own focus. Some ideas:

  • Get as far in your lesson book and earn as many Achievement points as you can
  • Bring in your favorite Disney music to work on
  • Work on skills outside of the ordinary routine of lessons, such as improv, playing from chord charts etc
  • Bring in a specific challenging song you want to focus on (one student learned Fur Elise last year)

 

Should I enroll in BookBlast if I can’t make it to regular summer lessons?

YES! If your schedule doesn’t allow for regular weekly lessons over the summer, use the Book Blast camp to keep your momentum and make sure you don’t lose ground before you start again in the fall.

 

If you are enrolled in lessons, it is also a great add-on to really catapult your progress (and reach your musical goals faster than ever!)

 

What is the cost?

​$230 if you are using this as a replacement for summer lessons.

Only $200 ($30 off) if you attending camp in addition to summer lessons!
