Here: Fall Saturday music camps at Music Maker Workshops

Music Maker Workshops' Saturday music camps are $75 for the fall sessions ($145 value). Sessions consist of four courses that meet once a week on Saturdays. Session One meets Oct. 2, 9, 23 and 30, and Session Two meets Nov. 6, 13, 20 and Dec 4.

Camps include:

• Kindermusik Around the World Camp (ages 4 to 8, 9 to 10:30 a.m.). The adventure features singing, games and instrument play-alongs, as well as story time and arts and crafts.

• Popular Voice Camp (ages 6 to 12, 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.). Teen idol-loving children will learn current hits from the likes of Taylor Swift and vote for the music they'd like to learn. Camp ends in a performance for friends and family.

• Rockstar Camp for intermediate or advanced students (ages 7 to 15, 12:15 to 1:45 p.m.). This camp is for budding musicians who already know the basics in either guitar (must bring their own), drums or vocals.

• Rock Guitar Camp for beginners (ages 7 to 12, 2 to 3:30 p.m.). This camp is for students looking to learn either acoustic or electric (must bring their own guitar).

For more information or to register, visit, call (480) 706-1224 or stop by the studio at 3233 E. Chandler Blvd., Suite 2.
