There’s a lot more to the music business than rocking out on a guitar. George Ramsey and Dean Williams, musicians who met at Davidson College and co-founders of Bold Music, are giving local teen musicians a chance to learn all about what it takes to be a recording artist, producer and sound engineer.

Through one-week camp sessions, intermediate to advanced guitarists, pianists and vocalists have the time and space to write and record original songs, and immerse themselves in the entire creative process, from manning the controls to producing final products — all under the direction of accomplished musician Jason Scavone, and sound engineer and studio owner Charles Holloman. Each one-week session is limited to 10 participants. The group works together to record a cover song and then writes, produces and records and original of their own.

“It’s very engaging,” says Ramsay. “The kids do most of the work and they walk away with an original song that they created, produced and recorded.”

The studio recording and songwriting camps are held at Charles Holloman Studios in Southend June 22-26 and July 13-17 for ages 13-18. Learn more at
