At Tune Builders Rock Camps, campers experience what it’s like to be in a band: learning, playing, writing and recording music. We use the word “rock” loosely as ALL GENRES OF MUSIC ARE WELCOME!

Tune Builders was founded by David Beckingham, singer-songwriter and guitarist for Juno-nominated band Hey Ocean after a decade of experience running rock camps for Vancouver kids and teens. We’re excited to offer 3 week-long rock camps in August 2019.

At Tune Builders we welcome all levels of musicians from beginner to advanced.

In the beginning of the week, Our campers (“Builders”) get familiar with the instruments, including drum kits, guitars, bass guitars and keyboards. They then learn cover songs by their favourite bands from The Beatles or AC/DC to The White Stripes or The Lumineers and everything in between. By mid-week they are learning how to jam as a group and write their own songs. Builders then start recording their band’s original song. The week ends with a concert for family and friend where Builders show off their new skills. Builders leave with their own recorded song, a new group of friends and tons of fun memories from a week of making music. Many of the bands from past camps have continued playing together long after camp ends and some have even gone on to get record deals and tour internationally.

All instructors at the camps are professional musicians. Throughout the week, other professional musicians will visit to share their talent and insight. Our aim is to inspire young musicians to enjoy participating in music no matter what level they are at.

Note: Register below to select your preferred week of camp and we will send you a full sign up sheet shortly!

*August 05-09 we have an open open schedule for one of our camps. If you register for that week below, we will do our best to build a camp around your age group. This would be a great week to organize a group of friends yourself and have everyone sign up!!!


Guitar lessons are available with David at 33rd and Ontario in Vancouver. Lessons are booked privately and are 1 hour in length.

Teaching Style: 
I teach beginner to advanced students. I do not get heavily into theory, but focus on playing songs, strengthening technique and working on the ear. Toward the end of each lesson, I make videos and song sheets for my students for the things we learn and I upload them to their own online shared folder so they can watch at home during the week and practice.
