"Our classes allow you to be LIVE with the artists (limited to a small group of 20) You will not be muted. You will learn, hear stories, be privy to live performances, get tips from the pros themselves in an exclusive, group of 20 people, and get a very personal experience. You will be able to ask questions and they will be answered!
"This is your backstage pass to the VIP room! If you are a past camper, share takeaways you have gotten from your experiences at Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp. Invite your fellow bandmates to join you on the sessions. Gather your family around your computer to partake in the fun.
"Just like at our "in-person" camps, where it is commonplace for rock stars to drop in unannounced, you never know who might surprise you and show up on your class!"
