Join a Rock Band!

The rock band program is a unique experience for students to learn an instrument, hone their rhythm skills, collaborate with fellow musicians, and perform.


Bands meet for 1-hour each week, working together to learn and perform songs of their choice with the help of an experienced music instructor. 

The eight to ten week program concludes with a technical rehearsal and final rock concert.

The program is open to students 7+ including new beginners. Adults are also welcome! Students can register as a band with their friends or family, or we can match you with a group of similar age and experience. If joining as an individual, placement is not guaranteed but will will do our best to place each student in a band of similar age and experience level.
