Play In A Band & Rock (Legends of Rock Ages 10-18) - Class Starts Saturday

Our Legends of Rock Program is a twelve-week session for beginning-advanced musicians ages 12-18 which focuses on influential groups in music history. Our Fall 2017 session will feature three ‘Monsters of Rock’: AC/DC, Black Sabbath, and Led Zeppelin! These quintessentially influential bands contributed much to blues, hard rock, metal, stadium rock, and more, and through learning songs by these staples of music, our students will be able to play with their peers in a fun and supportive environment which encourages teamwork, musicianship, and music appreciation. Twice during the twelve weeks, the Legends will have the opportunity to play onstage for their families and friends.

The Saturday morning band rehearsals are also accompanied by weekly lessons. Here, our students can hone in on basic music theory and fundamental skills in the instrument of their choice through focusing on chords, scales, notes, rhythm, riffs, rudiments and the likes. Be it guitar, drums, bass, piano, or voice; they can take these skills and apply them not only to the group, but to their own individual musical pursuits.

Through learning about these bands, their history, and the way they performed, our Legends will accrue essential knowledge regarding performance etiquette and equipment. They will be able to play and perform with other kids and teens their age while learning fundamental skills and practical knowledge regarding performing in a professional setting with their bandmates.

Rock School for Ages 10-18: Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano & Vocals

This season our Legends of Rock Program will feature three bands we are calling Monsters of Rock: AC/DC, Black Sabbath, & Led Zeppelin. We will be working with these three bands as a group to ensure parts for all performers and vocalists and make it accessible to all students. These three bands are the quintessential influences of hard rock, blues rock, metal, stadium rock, and more that continue to influence bands today. This 12-week legend of Rock Program is for kids and teens ages 10-18 from beginners, intermediate and advanced students on instruments including guitar, bass, piano, drums, and vocals. Students learn about the history of the band, the catalog of music, profiles of the members of each band, and the equipment they used. At the end of the 12-week program, the students will perform for their family and friends at a local venue. This program is on Saturday's from 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (starting Saturday, September 9th) and the cost of tuition also includes a weekly private 30-minute lesson as well as a preview and a final season show.
