Rock Band Groups With Adam!

This year Adam will be trying something new, he will be teaching two hour long Rock Band Groups. One group will be for beginners to 3 years experience playing any type of “rock band” instrument, Keyboard, Drums, Guitar, Bass, Vocals etc. The other group will be for those with 3 or more years experience. Both Groups will be for ages 8+

The groups will have a max of 6 per group. The registration fee is $40 per student and there will be a $10 concert fee which covers both of our academy concerts. The groups will meet on Monday’s at 6:00 (beginners) and 5:00 (intermediate) for one hour, the monthly fee for this will be $77 starting in September and ending in June.

Not sure what you want to play? Wondering about what it takes to work with other people in a band? Want to be in a band but don’t have any bandmates? Let us help you! In this camp we will build a band, learn how to work together musically, write and perform songs while improving your music skills and having a ton of fun! Everyone welcome, any instrument, no instrument, singers, and more — everyone gets a place in the band! We will also learn to arrange/write chord progressions, melodies, lyrics and rhythms and weave them together into the fabric of a song. Working together we will be introduced to a variety of genres and styles, and will try our hands at writing, arranging, working together to find what sounds best and figuring out why! A great start to being a rock star!!

New for 2017/18! Pre-school Music Groups!

She will lead them through rhythm exercises and melody. They will experience hand drums, ukulele, keyboard and of course voice!
