About Rockshop Academy
The Rockshop Academy was launched by George Pendergast and David Young in 2009. The idea was simple–to expose young minds to the secrets of rock and foster a new generation of musicians in the Santa Barbara area in the process. But summer camps are not just about playing. Of course, future rock stars hone their playing skills, but they also learn about other aspects of the industry, such as band marketing and songwriting techniques, so that they are covered on all fronts when the success comes.
