Students will get to build and take home their very own Tube Screamer effect pedal.
What You'll Get
Guitar effects pedals, also known as “stomp-boxes,” are a useful tool in the guitar player’s toolbox for tone shaping. They are foot-pedal boxes that provide a variety of sound effects for the guitar to help to diversify the overall scope and range of the player’s tone and sound. Understanding the inner workings of an effect pedal as well as the options available allows for the player to take a more active role in the development of their sound and be able to troubleshoot technical issues when they arise on stage or off.
In this course, the students will get to assemble their very own Tube Screamer effect pedal. By taking this hands-on approach the student will get to touch each part of the pedal as well as learn how it contributes to the whole working device.

About El Camino School of Music, Repair and Technology
El Camino School is a community-based music school offering a wide variety of courses, lessons, guest lectures and events. One of the main focuses at El Camino School will be trade-based learning, and developing the next generation of touring technicians, but that’s not all. We will also offer music lessons, music therapy, seminars, and meet-ups.
The school’s primary objective is to create a true collaboration with the community and local music industry in order to impart knowledge for those seeking to further their understanding, careers, or hobbies. We also aim to educate current and aspiring musicians on how the music is created before the artists even strike a string. This includes everything under the surface in creating music, from guitar circuitry to the inner workings of a guitar amp or effects pedals. Musicians that understand how it all works are more likely to succeed in their craft.
School president and founder John Theisen, a longtime contributor to the local Orlando music scene, has had a love for music and a high amount of respect for the people that make the show possible behind the scenes. Aside from being a musician, he was a community fundraiser and arts administrator for over a decade. Theisen’s vision was to create a space that helps inspire and empower others through learning. This school is a community space where people can come together and learn from other professionals on their journey to becoming an integral part of a production or some future in music.
The vision is to bring people together to grow in and around music, within the music. Aside from the technical aspects of music production, El Camino offers Music Therapy, a course that focuses on community building, wellness, and self-empowerment through music. The creation of music, moving to music, and even listening to music can do wonders when dealing with those with cognitive, emotional, and even physical conditions. El Camino School will also be providing music therapy to bridge the gaps between its students and the world around them.
