Bayside-based music program gearing up for winter

By Tom Momberg

MM Rock Camp, the Bayside-based music education and performance program led by guitarist and jazz musician Michelle (Marie) Nestor, is calling for winter registrations.

The camp, open to children and teens between the ages of 10 and 17, takes its students through education, practice and performance of jazz, blues, funk, classic and modern rock styles. The ten-week winter session starts Dec. 13 and is open to all young musicians with basic drum, guitar, bass, keyboard, percussion or vocal skills. The session will be concluded with a concert.

Practices run from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on weekdays, and will take place at a new location, 214-35 40th Ave.

Register online at www.mmrockcamp.com. The cost for the winter session is $850, but those who register before the Nov. 18 deadline can register for $800, Nestor said.
