Alabama Blues Project will host its 2014 Spring After-School Blues Camp At Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School in Tuscaloosa. The 10-week camp will begin the first week of February, skipping the week of Spring Break. For more information please contact Paula Demonbreun at (205) 752-6263 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mondays, 3:15-5:15 p.m.: Blues camp sessions open to MLK fourth- and fifth-graders only.
Tuesdays, 3:15-5:15 p.m.: Blues camp open to all students.
Our students are taught by some of the best professional blues musicians of our state, and they also learn blues history along with a life skills curriculum. At the end of the program, our budding superstars will treat their family and friends to a performance at the end of camp.
There are many educational benefits of attending blues camp. Musical skills and group performance improves students’ self esteem and teamwork and can further their goals in becoming more involved at school and in their community. The performance at the end of Blues Camp helps introduce a wider audience to Alabama’s living blues culture. Plus, After-school Blues Camp is loads of fun and many students make lasting friendships.
