Wisconsin´s largest music store, Cascio Interstate Music of New Berlin, is providing electric guitars to Milwaukee's Discovery World, to be used in their most popular teen workshops and camps during the summer of 2012. The one-week workshops and camps, "Custom Electric Guitar Designer" and "Custom Electric Guitar Designer Pro," allow teens from southeastern Wisconsin to obtain their own guitar and create custom graphics and designs during the workshop's and camp´s week.
"We are proud to partner with Discovery World to present this unique learning opportunity. Collectively, we hope to inspire attendees to use their creativity to customize a one-of-a-kind electric guitar. We expect this community effort will bring young musical enthusiasts together and help them develop their musical talents," says Christopher Houser, Marketing Manager of Cascio Interstate Music. Discovery World's Executive Director, Paul Krajniak agrees, and states that "Discovery World is grateful for our collaboration with Cascio Interstate Music. We are excited to create a new wave of innovators during this summer experience. The best way to teach about the future is to build it and our collaboration with Cascio Interstate Music is helping us do just that."
"Custom Electric Guitar Designer" is a summer camp for students going into grades 6 - 8, offered in two sessions from June 25-29 and July 30-August 3. This workshop provides the guitar, and has the camper create custom graphics, screenprint on the guitar, and laser etch images onto the pickguard. The cost for this camp is $325 for Discovery World members, $350 for non-members, and includes a $50 materials fee. The other workshop, "Custom Electric Guitar Designer Pro" is offered for teens heading into grades 9 - 12, offered from June 18-22.

Both the workshops and the camps offer an expert tuneup and lesson from the professionals at Cascio Interstate Music.
