Rock Band 101

JUNE 18-29

TUESDAY/THURSDAY  6-8PM Rehearsals

Live Performance at Sturgis Falls!

 

The goal of this course is to give young musicians a chance to play together in bands under the guidance of seasoned coaches. Ideally we will have enough students to put together a couple of bands that will include a couple of singers, keyboards, drummer, bassist, and guitar players! We welcome other instruments that may want to give it a try too! Throughout the course of this class students will learn how to play with a group, learn songs by ear and reading  chord charts, and how to prepare for a performance. We are excited to announce that our Rock Band 101 students will have the opportunity to perform at Sturgis Falls! If we have enough bands, we will put together some other rehearsal times, so if T/TH 6-8 doesn't work for you and you're still interested, please let us know.
