Headliners Camp is open to musicians age 11-19. There is a list a minimum requirements listed on this web sight that are required to participate. Rockers are put into bands according to their age, musical taste’s and ability level and get to democratically decide on some cover songs to play and we encourage every band to try and wright and play at least 1 original song. Headliners camp is 1-5PM Monday through Friday with the concert on Saturday.
There is much emphasis on rehearsing and improving your skills, working on stage presence and performance. The second week of camp each Headliner Band gets to go into one of our professional recording studios to record 2 of their songs. We multitrack and mix the songs just like we do for the hundreds of pro musicians that use our facilities, Anti-Matter Studios.
On the last Saturday of each session there is a concert at Austins world famous Antones venue in front of hundreds of people. Each band gets to play a set that is recorded by a professional video crew and posted online to share with family and friends.
Antimatter Garage: is the name of our recording studio and as the name suggests is all about experiencing the recording studio. There is only 1 band per session and the students get to spend 6 days writing, recording and editing exactly like the pro’s do. Hosted by our multi award winning teacher Alex Marrero and recording engineer Russell Tanner to be selected for this camp you must have serious musical accomplishments, have attended Headliners Camp multiple times or along with a video audition must call for an interview.
This group also will perform at the Antones concert.
