Carl Fischer Music Inks Deal with Camp Jam:
Rock Solid Series for Aspiring Rock Stars Launches Summer 2009

New York , NY — Carl Fischer Music is joining forces with Camp Jam, the foremost rock summer camp for kids and adults alike, to create its most brilliant and effective learning program to date. Starting this summer, the official curriculum of Camp Jam takes the form of the Rock Solid series, guiding the aspiring rock musician from beginner level to playing in a rock ’n’ roll band in no time at all! Developed by some of the greatest rock musicians in the business, including Liberty DeVitto (former drummer for Billy Joel), Jim Peterik (guitarist/vocalist for Survivor), Peter Stroud and Tim Smith (guitarist and bassist for Sheryl Crow), the Camp Jam instructional program is packed with essential playing techniques that can be learned quickly and easily.

The series lauches with Rock Solid: Guitar (CF00003 - $24.95) by Steve Freeman, Rock Solid: Bass (CF00004 - $19.95) by Don Klayman, Rock Solid: Keyboard (CF00005 - $23.95) by Pete Orenstein, and Rock Solid: Drums (CF00001 - $19.95), by Liberty DeVitto and Sean Kennedy. Perfect for all musicians just starting out, as well as those with a few months of experience, the lessons and exercises are not only fun to play, but have already proven effective at Camp Jam locations in 16 cities across the United States.

Chris Scialfa, Senior Vice President of Sales at Carl Fischer Music, says, “We are excited to be teaming up with Camp Jam and their extremely talented writers and musicians. They’ve created a fun and relaxed learning environment with their camps and are developing aspiring young musicians across the country. We’re proud to be publishing the books that will make up their curriculum.”
