Plugged in

Any youth could benefit from participating in Plugged In’s April Vacation Camp. The camp is from April 15-19 from 9:00-3:00 (with optional extended day). The camp is open to ages 11-18 of all skill levels. Students will join a band with band members their age and skill level. Each band will write and record a song and make a music video. On the last day, bands will perform in a live stream performance for friends and family to watch online.

The Plugged In Band Program is a unique non-profit rock band program in Needham. It also teaches kids of all skill levels and needs about using music to help others. In addition to ensemble band classes, private lessons, songwriting workshops, summer camp and community performances, five times a year students perform in benefit concerts that raise money for causes and organizations chosen by the students themselves. Moreover, Plugged In provides a nurturing and supportive community. Young musicians of all levels and needs feel a sense of belonging. Moreover, they will have an opportunity to express their musical interests and a chance to use their music to help others around the world.

Registration is also open for Plugged In’s 2-day

Summer Day Camps (offered July 8-19, July 22-August 2 and August 12-16).

Founded in 2002, Plugged In now has over 150 students from all over Massachusetts. Some of our students experience emotional and learning difficulties, such as ADD, depression, and low-self-esteem and/or have special needs such as autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. In the loving and non-competitive atmosphere at Plugged In, all differences are transcended through a shared passion for music, the teamwork involved with using music to help others and an atmosphere of compassion and fun.
