PumpWerks Productions picks up where other rock & roll and music programs left off….

Kahuna, which is 3 hours/day for 2 weeks), and include a live performance in a major
music venue in the Boulder/Denver, CO area.
All packages include your group working intensively with a professional music producer

education. See below for experience and resume.

The Producer Package…
This package includes your group working intensively, 1 on 1 with a music producer.
Your group will perform at a major music venue in the Boulder/Denver area. Want some
help with that “elusive” chorus? Need to come up with a cool bridge? Want to smooth
out some rough edges? Just not sure what to do with that cool idea you have…. This is
the basic package, and included in every other package.

The Press Kit Package…
This package includes The Producer Package, with the addition of extensive group
discussions as to, “What is a press kit, and why we need one”. Each group will discuss
and create a professional press kit. This includes a shrink wrapped professional studio

recording techniques, and record in a professional studio environment. We will discuss
CD and CD insert design. Each group will create their own demo CD with insert. Each
member of the group will get a demo master and a computer file of all press kit material
to make as many copies as you’d like. Every group also gets 10 finished copies of the
press kit (including an 8 ½ X 11 promo picture, group bio, stage layout/input list, and
shrink wrapped professional studio demo) ready to be given to music venues to start
getting gigs!!
