A compilation of songs written and recorded by RIOS students at our Carlsbad studio. Students studied chord progressions, keys, patterns, and dynamic. They then created melodies to float over their guitar, ukulele or piano compositions. Once they had their format, they added words, harmonies, beats, guitar solos and headed into the studio to lay it all down.
Each quarter RIOS students perform for their friends and family at at showcase somewhere in the North County community. They all perform songs from that quarters theme. Fall is 80's and 90's, Winter is Love Songs, and Spring is 60's and 70's.
We celebrate summertime here at RIOS with Surf Rock Camp! Students come in at 9 for 2 hours of music instruction with a focus on classic surf rock tunes such as Pipeline and Wipeout. We also cover iconic bands such as The Beach Boys and some 90's surf punk. at 11:00 the students head out to South Carlsbad State Beach for 2 hours of surfing with some of San Diego's best lifeguards. They return to the studio at 1 for lunch and more music.
