  • Rock Band Experience

    Unleash Your Inner Rockstar!

    Learn songs from all-time greats and today’s favorites, from the Beatles and Led Zeppelin to Bruno Mars, Imagine Dragons, and more! On the first day of this workshop, rock bands will be formed according to musical ability and instrument. If you have even a basic knowledge of your instrument, you’ll be amazed at what you can do in Youth Music Project’s beginner-level band. This camp runs from August 1014. More-experienced student musicians will be matched with others at their level for a challenging and rewarding rock and roll experience, culminating with a smashingly great show beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday!

    Teen Week culminates with a Friday concert in Youth Music Project’s state of the art Meteor Lounge featuring the music of the Rock Band Experience and Songwriting Workshop students, fully mixed by Live SET students, with art and graphic design work by Design Rocks students.

    Sound Engineering for Teens

    Learn the art and science of sound engineering with top professionals in the field! Over the course of teen week, students will explore how to manipulate sound and why sound systems work the way they do.

This is a one-of-a-kind chance for young musicians, music fans, engineers, technical artists, and creative types of all kinds to learn a valuable, interesting, and employable skill — how to make live music and amplified audio sound its best in performance settings.

  • Design Rocks

    Design, marketing, and the business behind the music!

    Design Rocks! This Rock & Roll Design Studio is an exciting collaboration with the Chehalem Cultural Center to offer teens the opportunity to learn about design by creating content for rock-band clientele. Throughout the week, design students will take Zoom brainstorming meetings and hold follow-up consultations with the songwriters and rock bands through the YMP’s Rock Band Experience and Songwriting Workshop camps. CCC design students will work with individual YMP bands to create unique album art, logos and posters to be showcased at the concert. They will design shirts that will be screenprinted by YMP staff. Students will gain real experience working with YMP groups as their own clients, and will learn from practicing designers and arts educators as they translate their ideas from the page to the computer screen to real merchandise!

  • This studio series takes place at the Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg, OR. Classes run from 1–3 p.m., Mon–Fri. The CCC Design Studio artists are invited to attend the Friday 5 p.m. pizza party and 6pm concert at Youth Music Project in West Linn, OR but will be responsible for their own transportation.
