Our Summer Camps take place in downtown Fairfax, in the School Street Plaza Studio 8D, select weeks in June, July and August.
Kids are given the experience of playing music with other kids, forming bands, learning songs, and how to perform.

*Campers must be age 9+ and have experience playing instrument or singing. This is a group performance camp so the ability to play instrument or sing is required.
“My son attended this camp for two summers and he just loved it. It was a great mix of fun, collaboration, and hard work. He even practiced nightly at home so the band would not be let down! And then there was a performance at the end that gave all us parents smiles that could not be wiped off our faces. Awesome!”
“My son has done camps with Jeff for a few years and is already looking forward to this summer. He even wanted Jeff as his regular instructor and thanks to his tutelage my boy is shredding at 12!”
“My teen son’s band has been working with Jeff for a couple of years now. Their sound and technique has improved so much that they play paid gigs. Jeff has the right combination of being cool, and being a professional who can guide the band into playing incredible music.”
