Our Rock University program brings together young musicians from all backgrounds (keyboardists, drummers, guitar players, vocalists) so that they experience what it's like to be in a real Rock Band. Just like athletic teams need coaching in order to play their best, young musicians need the same direction in developing their skills in a band setting. Learning to play together as a band, write songs together, arrange, orchestrate, use dynamics, improvise, take solos, sing vocal harmonies and most of all have fun, are a few of the elements that we focus on in these groups. Within a few weeks, our bands will be performing and recording their first CD.
GET OUT OF THE GARAGE....GET ONSTAGE!
OUR STUDENTS GET ONSTAGE EXPERIENCE, WITH LIVE PERFORMANCES AT LOCAL VENUES
"THE SCIENTIST" (COLDPLAY)
Rock University classes rehearse weekly for 60 minutes. While each band begins by bringing to together musicians with similar interests, each band truly forms it's own unique dynamic because of the individuals involved, and the talents that they each bring to the band. All instruments are welcome!
