Get ready to set the stage on FIRE! Our Rock Band class is open to vocalists, guitarists, bassists, drummers and keyboardists who want to experience what it’s like to be in a rock’n roll band. Aside from being fun and genuinely cool, being in a band develops many musical skills. Many of these skills are harder to identify and work on when playing alone. They include listening skills, taking musical direction and constructive criticism, teamwork, accountability for knowing your own parts to the songs and being open minded to others’ taste in music.
From a musical standpoint, students will learn about pop song structure in general. Intros, verses, choruses, hooks, riffs, learning to solo, outros and interludes will be taught while learning Rock and Pop hits! Past playlists from previous Rock Band classes include songs from artists like: The White Stripes, Interpol, Bruno Mars, Katie Perry, Cage The Elephant and many more! Our Rock Band students have had the opportunity to perform around town in several different venues and events that include the Pasadena Conservatory of Music, Jones Coffee Pasadena and the Pumpkin Run Festival in Alhambra.
This session runs for two weeks and meets on Saturday from 1:30-2:30 pm. This class is for intermediate level students who have been taking private lessons on their respective instrument for 1-2 years. If you fit that mold and want the chance to rock out with other musicians, now is your chance! Our Rock Band teachers have years of experience performing in bands. They know how to connect with students so they enjoy their experience to the fullest. Register your child to be a part of something special this spring by experiencing our Rock Band class for themselves!
