Rain City Rock Camp’s Advanced Music Program (AMP) is a week-long intensive workshop produced in collaboration with the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) for girls (cis and trans) and gender expansive youth ages 14 to 19 with prior music experience. AMP’s youth-centered, empowerment-oriented approach to musical development incorporates mentor-guided song writing, band participation and experiential learning.
Campers participate in empowerment workshops, off-site trips to studios and venues, and more! At the end of the week, participants get to record their original song with their band in a professional studio.
COVID-19 UPDATE: We have been carefully following the course of the COVID-19 outbreak hoping that we would still be able to hold our summer programs in person. But, after considering all of the information currently available, we have decided that the best way to protect the health and safety of the RCRC community is to switch Summer Camp, South Sound Rocks and our Advanced Music Program (AMP) to a virtual format. We are sad that we won’t get to see our amazing campers in person this year, but we’re also excited to explore new ways of gathering together online to support each other, express ourselves and make some music! We hope you’ll join us on this journey of discovery!
Date: Updates soon!
Who May Apply to AMP?
All girls (cis and trans) and gender expansive youth ages 14 to 19 with prior music experience in guitar, bass, drums, vocals or keyboard/piano may apply. You don’t have to live in Seattle or Washington State to be eligible. People of color and gender expansive individuals are encouraged to sign up!
How Much Does AMP cost?
We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to have their voice heard. That’s why our tuition is on a sliding scale from $425 to $25. We appreciate your support in paying what you are able, and any amount over $425 is a tax-deductible donation that will continue to help us rock the world!
What Happens After I Apply for AMP?
You’ll hear back from us by May 15. If you don’t initially get a spot in AMP, don’t worry. You’ll be immediately put on the waiting list and will hear from us if any spots become available. We’ll do our best to get you in!
