Andrew Waite teams up with School of Performing Arts

Andrew Waite (photo: submitted)Holland College School of Performing Arts (SoPA) is partnering with Andrew Waite to present three one-week Island Rock Camps for music students ages 9–18 on the college’s Prince of Wales Campus this summer.

The day camps give participants the opportunity to perform with others, explained Waite.

“One of the things that can be missing in formal music education is the social aspect that comes from playing music with others. Arranging, jamming, learning by ear, writing and creating are all aspects of music that sometimes slip away in the current public system,” he said.

Island Rock Camps are taught by Waite and fellow Andrew Waite and the Firm band members, Nikki Waite, George Maros, Evan McCosham, and Bruce Rooney. McCosham and Rooney are both graduates of SoPA’s Music Performance program. 

The camps place students in small ensembles, where they work with a leader musician, choose and arrange material together and present their work at the end of the week in a concert. All three of the Charlottetown Island Rock Camps will take place in SoPA’s Music Performance Buildings on the Prince of Wales Campus.

In addition to the camps running in Charlottetown, there will be camps in Summerside and Montague, and a Perth-Andover Camp in New Brunswick in partnership with Larlee Creek Hullabaloo Festival.
