Who should take this class?
Youth Pop/Rock bands are for kids ages 7-17 who have been taking private lessons for at least 6 months. Students are placed in bands according to their age, level of experience, taste in music, and weekly availability. Each band (4-8 students) has their own director who helps them decide which songs to play, how to read their charts, keeps the guitars in tune, helps them understand any part on any instrument, and runs their sound.
Goal of the class: Take your instrumental and/or vocal skills to the next level by learning how to play in a band setting. Band mates will collectively choose 4-10 songs that they will perform at the show(s).
Class can include:
A Drummer, Bass Player, Keyboardist, 1-3 Guitar Players, 1-3 Vocalists. Being able to play an instrument and sing is a plus.
Gear needed for class:
We supply the practice room with a drum set, amps, PA system (for vocals), and guitars. Most guitarists and bass players will bring their own instruments.
