He will also be hosting an ALL AGES Dave Weckl Drumming Intensive at DSRP. (Separate registration.)
STOP PRACTICING… START PERFORMING®
The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music® has presented a summer music camp experience that is second to none since 2008. We have toured to Cleveland, Columbus, Pittsb
urgh, Memphis, Nashville, New York City, Chicago, and many places in between. We’ve played at Hard Rock Cafe’s, legendary rock clubs like The Bitter End, clinics with Nashville recording session musicians, the Stax Music Academy in Memphis, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and even Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. We’ve also brought joy to many homeless shelters, community centers, retirements homes and community music concert series along the way. This year Summer Rocks! is taking over Downtown Royal Oak as part of Royal Oak Live!, Detroit’s premiere live music kick off to the summer!
