Why join the Rock Band Class?
Youth: Guitarists are not encouraged to participate in school bands and often are not allowed to even audition. Drum set players are relegated to snare and/or simple percussion in school band. Bassists are often asked to switch to Upright Bass when the music they listen to is played on Electric Bass. Singers have oppourtunities in choir but often find they aren't given music that they actually enjoy singing let alone performing. Kids want to ROCK!
Adults: Adults who enjoy playing may not have the interest in, time or ability to join a performing band. Our Adult Band is the perfect answer. Students of different levels can enjoy playing in a low key environment with an instructor to guide them and provide music.
We pride ourselves on our beautiful peformance area; a professionally lit stage, professional sound system, and seating for an audience of up to seventy.
We encourage but do not require our students to participate in low preasure peformances. We have students of all ages who enjoy peforming in groups as well as solo.
