And i probably can't go. I got 2 emails form them:

John,

This is Dave from Power Chord Academy. After reviewing your student music
profile, I have been asked by our Executive Director to personally invite you to
our program. We have determined that you would be an excellent candidate for
one of our top projected Emo bands that needs a Bassist with Less than 1 year
experience. We definitely want you out at our New York sessions this summer!

and

Hello John,

Thank you for entering in our Win A Free Trip Contest. Congratulations! You have
been selected to receive a partial scholarship to Power Chord Academy! To claim
this prize please have your parent or guardian call us at 800-***-****
immediately. This contest offer expires in 3 days and is only available to new
student registrants.

At Power Chord Academy, dedicated musicians ages 12-18 are put through the most
inspirational, educational, and intensive week of their young careers. Never
before has a program been offered so critically vital to the inherent success of
developing musicians.


I really wanted to go... but its still probably over $1,000, and its in New York, Ny and i live in Rochester, Ny. Do you think i should beg my parents to go? [We're in financial trouble] or just forget about it this year?

that right there is 2 great reasons to not go

first of all, its an emo band, so there probly gonna commit suicide in a couple weeks to a month, and second a bassist with under 1 year experience is what they require, so that should tell u that the whole band is gonna have no experience

if its really worth it, your parents will come up with the money.

an 11 year old friend ofmine will be paying £2000 becuase she was accepted at Sylvia Young but she really wants to be a dncer when she grows up. so it is worth it.

lol dude ur so funny!!!

I actually somewhat agree; the whole thing seems like a waste. They don't have very high standards for bass players (or musicians in general), and the messages seem automated, rather than "personal" as the author of the second one indicated.

if this power chord academy thing is good then they would refer to it as "pop-punk" or "alternative rock" or something.......but this is in my opinion

It's a stupid camp to lure wannabe musicians in and make heaps of money off of them. Don't waste your parent's money. Buy your own Equipment and make your own kickass music instead with that kind of cash.
