The camp, which is recommended for ages 13 and older, will cover recording, production, and songwriting with Maziarz, whose music has been heard in more than 60 movies and TV shows, including “Dawson’s Creek” and “Joan of Arcadia.” “
The “First Tracks” recording camp will run from July 10-14 at Counterpoint Studios at Salt Lake,” he said. “If you’re going to have an amazing first experience in the studio, you’re going to have it at this place.”
Campers will participate in hands-on production, research, recording and editing experiences, and gain an understanding of how pop songs are made from recording to overdubbing and mastering, Maziarz said.
“As a studio in Salt Lake City, the student will be dropped off and picked up in Park City,” he said. “Idol Camp,” which focuses on songwriting and performance, will run from July 17, 17-21, according to Maziarz.
“This camp is for those who are more interested in the look and career of life than the writers,” he said. “We’re looking at everything from the established formula of a pop song — verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus.
Campers will also learn about hard and soft rhymes, and the differences between individual and album cuts, Maziarz said.
“We’ll also have a philosophical one and we’ll look at whether or not the idea of writing about a song is big enough or not,” he said.
“Idol Camps” will be held in various venues, depending on the size and needs of the group, Maziarz said.
“If it’s a small group thing, I’ll do a session with myself,” he said. “I have a grand piano and a lot of guitars.”
If the group is larger, the camp can be held in different areas and around the Maziarz City Park.
“In the past we held camp at” Weilenmann School of Discovery and set the kids up on a real stage and use a real, healthy system,” he said. “We also used” Egyptian theatre students “.
While Maziarz offers snacks and sticky drinks, students are encouraged to bring bagged lunches with food.
“We’ll break it down where, depending on the weather, kids can go outside and share songs as if on their phones,” he said.
Breaktime is the only time campers can bring out electronic devices, Maziarz said.
“We are not a digital camp,” he said. “You put the phones in the box so we can concentrate in real time.”
Maziarz is also adding a recording experience to the camp for those who want to mark some tracks outside of government and time, he said.
During the camp, Maziarz also hopes students will learn life skills such as communication, organization, problem solving, budgeting and relationship building.
“We also go over how to get with band members, how to find band members, contracts and knowing when you’re ready for the next level,” he said.
Maziarz’s career camp was an excerpt from his years of experience in the music industry.
“My dear friend, Paul Fitzgerald, who has been an actor for decades, has decided to write and recite seriously these past few years,” he said. “So I started writing letters to him with all the tips that I wish he had told me when he left when I was 12, 13 and 14.”
Some of those tips include simple things like not putting up noise in the sound studio, the needs of different venue operators, Maziarz said.
“Are they looking for talent or are they scouting people in the seats?” she said.
As Maziarz wrote his letters to Fitzgerald, the list kept getting longer.
“I thought maybe this would be organized into something that would be useful for up and coming musical children,” he said.
After arranging the list, Maziarz searched through the line.
“I wanted to find things and elements that are applicable to any genre and level of music, whether they’re punk, country, rock, singer or musician,” he said. “I wanted to find something that someone who had been writing and playing for two years could draw and understand and find interesting. And I wanted to find those who were new to this, also find it interesting.
In addition, Maziarz wanted to give every camper a good understanding of basic songs.
“Even though the music industry is always changing, there are some golden rules that I call that will always be relevant to me, because business can be incredibly tricky territory if you don’t have any kind of relationship,” she said. changed the world with new songs, they will start from a solid foundation.
Even if some of the young artists participate in other music ventures such as “American Idol” and “The Voice” or if they cut a TikTok video, these lessons can give them the tools to help their careers, Maziarz said.
“I want to know what to do with all that extra work,” he said. “I want to know how to use that time in gigs or an interview, and how it helps to focus more than fifteen minutes.
Although camps of the 13th century and older are recommended, Maziarz is open to exceptions.
“If parents have a younger child who is really studious and devoted, they can just call me,” she said. “And if we feel they are ready, we will embrace them.”
Older students are also welcome.
“Sometimes, older students who have experience have joined the camp,” he said. “So, it’s not just my experience that speaks to the camp’s discussion points. There are also their experiences that can have a different meaning.
The last thing Maziarz hopes to convey to the campers during the summer camp is the different benefits of singing.
“There are many ways to be active through music, and there are many ways to find out how much you love in ways you’ve never loved before,” he says. “Reality, fame and status can be fragile. So if you don’t enjoy yourself on the journey, you’re going to be in for a real disappointment when you don’t continue to grow in the journey you planned.”
