The 2012 PEAK Boot Camp Approaches!

One of the undisputed highlights of the PEAK Performance Project every year is the week long Boot Camp!

Taking place at the beautiful RockRidge Canyon in Princeton, BC, all the top 20 artists participate in workshops, keynotes, and hands-on learning in a multitude of topics! From vocal lessons to music law, from songwriting to marketing plans, our goal is to make these artists well-rounded music industry entrepreneurs.

This year we are excited to welcome several first time faculty members, including: music historian Alan Crossproducer and Canadian indie-rock favourite  Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother), vocal coach Angela Kelman, and social media guru Brian Thompson! These and many, many more industry professionals will be sharing their expertise with our artists. Stay tuned for the full faculty list coming soon!

To get a taste of what Boot Camp is all about, check out this video from last year’s Boot Camp!
