Join a Band in San Francisco This Summer

Cool summer camps for musicians and creative kids

It’s summer in San Francisco and Bird in Russian Hill is hosting band camp lessons for the little ones. If you are looking for some fun during your vacation, sign your kids up for a week’s worth of band camp lessons. Bird is a music school, a creative space, a recording studio and record label, a performance venue and a really cool place to spend summer.

Bird is a fun place where music and technology come together in a positive and safe environment. Students of all ages (7 to infinity) and skill levels are encouraged to use what’s current to enhance their creative musical ideas. They emphasize technique and exposure to all genres of music, enabling musicians to build on familiar ideas to produce something unique. Bird likes to think of their band camps as the intersection of music, community and technology.

Summer band camps get to write and record their own original material through the Bird record label, Bird Records! Kids get to improve their music and collaboration skills as they rehearse each day to get ready for an end-of-week performance for family and friends. Students get to learn valuable team work and creative skills as they make their own recording and music video from concept to completion.

All skill levels welcome! Bird has challenges for beginning to advanced students, entering grades 2–9.
