Rock Band is an exciting program where students get the experience of collaborating with other musicians and playing in a real band. This is intended for students that have already built a firm foundation with the basics of their instrument and are looking to take that next step!
Every student enrolled in Rock Band is assigned to a specific band who will then have a weekly band class/rehearsal time. Students practice with the same band for an hour every week. They learn the many layers that go into playing with a band. Rock Band classes are led by instructors who have years of experience not only with teaching, but rehearsing and performing with their own professional bands.
Each band will perform several times a year at a variety of venues, so that students can experience the realities of being in a gigging band. Students will learn every step of the process from taking their music from the class room to the stage. Bands will have the opportunity to write original material as well as learn cover songs.
Most importantly, students will have a TON of fun learning to make music as a group and create lasting relationships with other like-minded musicians!
Some general topics that will be covered:
-Important musician terms and communication skills
-Song Arrangement & Composition
-Basic Music Theory
-Learning to find your spot to “fit” in to create ONE sound as a band
-Basic Sound Engineering (Mixing Boards, Amplification, Gear, etc..)
