Thanks to the generosity of my mom and her boyfriend, Paul, the kids were treated to a 2 week long summer music camp at a place in south Reno called JamPro. This business is a legitimate operation boasting several practice rooms, 3 studios, all the music equipment you can imagine and instructors that are well versed in playing, recording, teaching, and making sure that all the kids involved had fun.
It was such a treat picking them up every day and seeing their excited expressions as they described the songs they were learning and the new tricks on the instruments they were playing. On their own accord every single day they would sit down and practice their songs at home and I have to say I couldn't be more proud...a common theme for me, in case you hadn't noticed.
I put together a very brief video of the final performances they gave with their bands "Across the Ocean" and "Tidal Wave" ;)
I didn't want to spend the entire concert staring at my camera, so the footage is limited to a couple of songs, but I think you'll get the idea...they were both phenomenal, and everyone really enjoyed witnessing their musical debut!
