Summer camp

Join The Rock Underground this summer at the Warwick Valley Community Center for a week-long intensive Performance Program! Students will join a band, learn a selection of songs, and perform them at the Community Center at the end of the week! This program is perfect for students with basic experience in electric or acoustic guitar, piano, bass guitar, drums, and is interested in live performanceas well as singers, who will get the opportunity to learn an instrument and kick-start their journey to becoming an independent artist and musician! 

The program will run for two separate sessions:

Session 1 will run Aug. 12 - 16th for students ages 8-12 years old!
Session 2 will run Aug. 19 - 23rd for students ages 13 and up! This session will also have the opportunity to perform at Thomas P Morahan Waterfront Park, for The Rock Underground’s scheduled concert on 8/23 at 7PM.

Camp hours run from 10AM to 3PM which includes a 30-minute lunch break. End of week performances will occur in the Community Center auditorium on the Fridays of each week at 2:30PM.

Toddler Jam

We're thrilled to introduce a new program with The Warwick Valley Community Center: Toddler Jam run by The Rock Underground instructor Anne Clark!

Join us on Saturdays from 10-11am for a 10-week program to develop an early appreciation for music and all the diversity of sound it can offer! Explore different types of instruments, ranging from percussive knick-knacks such as shakers, tambourines and hand drums to tonal instruments such as piano or recorder; learn how to clap different rhythmic patterns in unison; join together in sing-alongs of your favorite songs; and much more!

Toddler Jam is perfect for the child who is showing early interest in music and/or sound, but may be too young to start regular weekly private lessons. Our goal is ultimately to nurture each student's love for music, while helping them learn about all of it's parts! This program is for children ages 2-4 years old and their caregivers.

Program tuition is $165. There are limited spaces, so don't wait to enroll! Call The Warwick Valley Community Center at 845-986-6422 and ask for Kerry! And of course, email us at or call us at 845-595-1801 if you have any program specific questions!
