Rock Camp 2017!


We’re Ready To Rock Out With You This Summer!

If You’ve Been Here Before, Sign Up Again For An Encore Performance. If It’s Your First Time, Get Ready To ROCK OUT!

Rock Camp 2017 (Ages 8-16)

The Sotogrande International Music Academy’s professional recording studio at the San Roque Campus gives students a chance to rock out for 5-days straight this summer and from the noise and chaos, an epic vocal group or band will be forged!

Train your voice every day like professional singers do, learn how to play and accompany yourself on the ukulele (NEW!) PLUS, think up a band name, write a song, record music, jam a lot, get a rockin’ stage ‘look’, film a music video, create your own CD cover and conclude with a live performance!

SIMA’s rock camp is designed to hone music performance and skills through performing in a real band. You and your child will be amazed at the amount of progress they make while having a blast singing and performing with other musicians.

  • Each group (up to 7 persons) will write their own original song under our professional guidance. We will play and arrange all the required instrumental parts, while they’re watching – though the finer details of that work will be done on our own time.
  • We will then record each vocal part
  • And then we will produce the final mix
