The TY Music Studio Intensive is a new two-week curriculum that allows teens to explore their Jewish identity through music.

Dates: July 24-August 7, 2018

Cost: $2,500

For: Current 8th-11th Graders

Two Recording Icons Help Teens Find & Share Their Voice

This two-week intensive provides campers the opportunity to explore the landscape of modern Israeli, Jewish and Middle Eastern music with Israeli producer Rami Carmel and American singer/songwriter Noah Wilker; two musicians who have decades of combined experience in the studio and on stage. Instructors will help participants arrange, record, and perform their own interpretations of modern Israeli Music, all while encouraging them to find and share their individual and collective voice.

Collaborate & Gain Confidence in Craft

Recording sessions, vocal/instrumental technique, and instruction on the basics in sound engineering and studio equipment will be enhanced through the collaborative process. This program is designed to teach campers about music, but it also focuses on teamwork, leadership, musical skill enhancement, stage performance, and ultimately strengthening confidence in their craft.

Intertwining Instruction with the “Best of Camp”

Tel Yehudah provides a one-of-a-kind Jewish environment, where teens interact with others from Jewish communities in the U.S., Israel and around the world. In addition to the musical instruction this intensive offers, the “best of camp” at TY includes the opportunity to partake in sports, arts and Israel education programs. Each week culminates in Shabbat, amidst the natural, serene setting of Tel Yehudah and is followed by a wild Israeli dance party.
