Music day camp for teens has openings

There are still a few spots available for youth ages 11-18 in Plugged In's Music That Matters (MTM) summer day camp. This is a unique nonprofit rock band program where young musicians of all levels and needs are welcome.

MTM helps young musicians build their musical skills, self-confidence, and self-esteem by removing the kind of academic, athletic, and social competition they often encounter during the school year. Our summer day camp, located in Needham, offers a relaxed, non-competitive environment with opportunity for both musical and personal growth. MTM includes all the most popular parts of Plugged In's spring and fall sessions including band class, songwriting workshops, music video production, offsite events, performance opportunities, and more.

Founded in 2002, Plugged In now has over 170 students from all over Massachusetts. Some of our students experience emotional and learning difficulties such as ADD, depression, and low-self-esteem and/or have special needs such as autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. In the loving and non-competitive atmosphere at Plugged In, all differences are transcended through a shared passion for music, the teamwork involved with using music to help others, and an atmosphere of compassion and fun.

Plugged In provides a nurturing and supportive community where young musicians feel a sense of belonging, an opportunity to express themselves and be acknowledged for their musical interests, and a chance to use their music to help others around the world.
