Punk shed a bit of its rebellion in its third wave with more melodic bands who achieved commercial success like, Green Day, Blink-182, Fall Out Boy, The Offspring, New Found Glory, Paramore, and the godfathers of the genre: The Descendents. Pop-Punk emphasizes tight musicianship and hooks played with energy and a sense of fun. You will learn how to change chords faster and with more clarity. Song forms are typically straightforward and easy to learn in a short amount of time. Stage presence and playing with intention and power will be key to getting the genre right! This will be a fun camp that will encourage you to channel your energy towards a common goal and the end result that is a riotous set of songs!
