METAL MIKE's METAL HEROES SUMMER CAMP - AUGUST 22-26, 2016
I am so excited to welcome you to our third Metal Heroes Summer Camp 2016!
Not only we are rocking a new location this year, but this will be the best Metal Heroes camp, yet!
Metal Heroes Summer Camp is designed to teach, motivate and inspire young metal-heads ages 12-20. 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 the lessons from my tour and music experiences with younger metal-heads and I’m really looking forward to open up the metal vault with you on so many levels and help you sharpen your skills to metal ninja perfection.
While helping you with individual tasks, we’ll also learn how to make amazing progress when rehearsing with a band to talking about any musical challenges that you might face. I can guarantee this will be incredibly fun and you will learn a lot, too.
You also will get some great inside info on how the music business works, 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 and everyone will get a chance to ask their questions and get plenty of one-on-one playing tips.
Continuing the tradition of great, inspiring visiting music mentors and industry pros, we have some very special guests in tow this year. You will not want to miss this. 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 that will feature classic as well as current metal anthems.
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!

SHARPEN YOUR SKILLS AT METAL MIKE's NORTH JERSEY GUITAR WORKSHOP
Next Date: TBA
Workshop Focus: TBA
Metal Mike Chlasciak, Guitar World columnist and lead guitarist for The Metal God - Rob Halford, has launched a monthly metal guitar workshop that will meet once a month in Northern New Jersey.
Each month, The North Jersey Metal Guitar Workshop focuses on a specific aspect of heavy metal guitar playing. Each session is based on laid-back open forum group environment where all students get plenty of one on one attention. Providing a platform for players to meet new metal guitar fans just like them, North Jersey Metal Guitar Workshop provides a great new opportunity for those who lead a busy lifestyle.
In regards to the mission of the new venture, Metal Mike shares his enthusiasm: “The reason I started the North Jersey Metal Guitar Workshop is that there are many guitarists who have full time jobs, families or are full time students, yet would still like to play and pursue their passion for playing metal guitar. They don’t have time to take lessons every week or join a band, but love to play in their free time. Personally, I love to be able to provide some great playing tips and an environment for these players because they really treasure the time they have with the instrument.”

SUPERCHARGE YOUR PLAYING WITH METAL MIKE'S INTENSIVE COURSE
Introducing 8 or 4 Hour Intensive Guitar Study Packages
This special program is designed for guitar students who prefer to drive in or fly in for a concentrated amount of material. Most players that take this route already have been playing for some time, but are looking for a correct roadmap or need questions answered before they can keep going at their own pace. These lessons take place over a span of 1 or 2 days and most students prefer weekends, although week days are also available.
How does it work?
You get an initial Skype consultation followed by Metal Mike's detailed preparation of a plan of attack to be tackled during the intensive. Each day consists of two 2 hour blocks with lunch in-between resulting in 4 hours per day of one on one instruction with Mike. For example, if you choose the 2 day course you will get 8 hours of total instruction. If you choose the one day course, you will get 4 hours of total instruction. Your take home materials include lesson notes and tablature plus video.
This program is available year round. Students are responsible for their own travel and lodging. We have a list of great nearby hotels next to the studio where the instruction takes place. Newark International Airport is only 35 minutes away. Located in Northern New Jersey, we are also only 15 minutes away from Manhattan, NY. In most cases we can pick you up and drop you off at your hotel prior and at the end of each session. Of course, if you are local, you can simply return home and meet Mike at the studio the following day. Price for 2 Day Intensive: $999.00. Price for 1 day Intensive: $499.00
If you would like to book, check our schedule or have any questions, please contact us at: MetalMike@MetalMike.net
"Very impressive. In just a few days with Metal Mike, I saw real growth in Oliver's musicianship. Imagine what could be accomplished in a full week. Such great talent!" ... Timothy B., MA
Metal Mike offers Skype metal guitar lessons to students across the world. This medium is perfect for rockers who live too far to attend Mike's workshops, have no time to commute or simply want to get a new perspective on their playing. Many find out that after watching a hundred of You Tube videos they are still struggling with various aspects of their playing. There is simply no substitute for an instruction with a mentor that has true and tried world experience.
Mike's guitar videos surpassed 3,000,000 views on You Tube and have already helped thousands of guitarists, but to make some serious progress you should consider a personalized action plan where Mike will plan out and overlook your progress.
Price: $50.00 for 30 minutes.
