Power Chord Academy Expands
"Over the past 10 years, Power Chord Academy has evolved into the most important pre-professional opportunity available for teen musicians,” says Admissions Director Dave Wood. “It’s amazing to witness the creative efforts spawned from the dreams and individual life experiences of our students. 2008 is going to be our biggest season ever and we can’t wait to work with new young musicians from around the world.”
About Power Chord Academy:
Since its inception in 1998, Power Chord Academy has witnessed an exponential growth directly attributable to the intrinsic value of the acclaimed curriculum, where dedicated musicians ages 12-18 are put through the most inspirational, educational, and intensive weeks of their young careers.
PCA attendees experience a week of virtual rock stardom! At Power Chord Academy, music and creativity are larger than life. Students professionally record a CD single with an established producer, shoot an MTV-caliber music video with a renowned director, and perform several huge concerts for awestruck friends and family. Students also receive guidance, inspiration, technical pointers, and exclusive performances from some of today's most prominent and influential bands and industry executives. This is truly a dream experience for teen musicians.
