Rock and Roll High

Rock and Roll High, a week long camp for children and teens that to-date, has taught and inspired thousands of kids, is coming to Hidden Hills next week! Students form a band with peers, learn to write and record their own songs, and perform their music live. This great camp begins June 22 at the Hidden Hills Community Center running daily through June 26th.  Both grade school and middle school classes will be offered.  Sign up at the community center office or contact Aaron Burch rockandrollhigh@mac.com.


 

Check out this excerpt from the upcoming issue of Hidden Hills Magazine on Rock and Roll High creator and coach Aaron Burch.

Music coach Aaron Burch spoke the language of music long before he said his first word. Surrounded by pots, pans and plastic bowls, Aaron drummed with wooden
spoons on everything within reach. He grew up on a diet of Beatles and Rolling Stones. His kid-like enthusiasm for music carried him all the way through his formative
years and throughout college at Pepperdine University.

Burch helped form a band, Aria Decline (later renamed The Good Cheer) and toured the U.S. That’s when he decided he wanted to do more than perform music. He wanted to be a part of teaching others to develop their creative potential. “Between the two tours, I approached a community center and asked if I could teach a class about how
to get your band going and get a demo recorded. That was in 2005,” recalls Burch. So began the concept of Rock and Roll High, a weeklong camp for children and teens that to-date, has taught and inspired thousands of kids. As part of the program, which Burch brings to the Hidden Hills Community Center this Summer, students form a band with peers, learn to write and record their own songs, and finally perform their music live. “It’s a win-win situation,” says, Burch. “The kids have a great time together, they learn about music, and they even get to be in a photo shoot and video production.”
