 What To Expect ...

In association with Music Masters Camps and Full Moon Resort, guitar shredder “Metal” Mike Chlasciak will host his “Metal Heroes Summer Camp” August 24-28 at Slide Forest House Resort in Big Indian, NY.

Developed for young metal-heads in the age group of 12-18, Metal Heroes Summer Camp is designed to teach, motivate and inspire young metal-heads through intense, but fun instruction in heavy metal. The crescendo of this very special vacation experience will take place on the last day when the students will have a chance to perform with Mike in front of their family and friends during a live concert staged at the camp’s playground.

Metal Mike commented on the camp, “I am beyond excited to kick off and welcome you to the Metal Heroes Summer Camp. Doing an event like this is something that has been on my mind for a very, very long time. I’m psyched to return in 2015 for our second annual metal celebration. All rock band instruments are welcome focusing on Guitar, Bass, Drums and Vocals. I hope you will join me on this 100% full-on metal journey. I have always wanted to share my tour and music experiences with younger metal-heads. I’m really looking forward to open up the metal vault with you on so many levels in order to help you sharpen your skills to metal ninja perfection.

While helping you with individual tasks and any challenges you might face, I’ll share with you how to make amazing progress when rehearsing with a band, how to quickly apply new material and how to deliver a powerful live performance. I can guarantee this will be incredibly fun and you will learn a lot, too. You also will get great introductory tips on the music business, how to work well with others, all the while you fully immerse yourself in the music of the metal gods. We’ll be jamming together, hanging out together, studying what makes a song or a performance great - while everyone will get a chance to ask their questions and get plenty of one-on-one playing advice. And, of course, get ready to hear countless tour stories which more than likely involve your favorite rockers. We’ll close out the camp with a superb metal concert in front of your family and friends.

Speaking of friends - I invited some, because what’s a camp without some pals … I’ll tell you all about it very soon.

We have several other activities planned which include a metal discovery lounge, concert DVD preview and discussion, and even the ability for campers to make their very own concert clothing and jewelry. Campers will also have a chance to check out various items from my journeys that include custom guitars, dressing room signs, posters, tour itineraries and more. While all the metal-heads are enjoying a great time hanging out and jamming with their friends old and new, guitarists will be studying guitar lick packs especially designed for the camp, while drummers and bass players will learn the secrets of a tight metal rhythm section through metal clinics. Vocalists will get plenty of tips on different singing styles whether it is Halford type wail to Gossow like annihilating growl. I will be there overseeing the entire day to lead rehearsals and go over song parts. I really want the kids to experience the power of rock and metal music and have a lot of fun while doing so, because ultimately, no one picks up an instrument not to have fun with it. So, if spending nearly a week at a beautiful resort like location while immersing yourself in all things metal sounds good to you – then let’s rock! This is for you. Metal For Life!”
