About The Bands: (Two age groups offered: 2nd-5th and 6th-12th) Rock School Band - Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocals, Keyboards
Rock School Bands are for beginners (6 months) through advancing players on all instruments. Learning to play together as a team, mastering your part, reading charts and putting it all together as a stage performance, learning about basic styles and concepts is covered each week.
Our teachers are professional "gigging" musicians with university training and real-world playing experience. Basic music theory concepts are also taught using examples from the songs the bands are playing.
We focus on how music is put together with intervals, patterns, chords, steady beat and basic rhythms and rhythmic notation, 12-bar form and improvisation. Students move ahead in their skill levels at their own pace, and the teacher assigns parts appropriate for each band member. Rock 'n Roll (classic and contemporary) and familiar classics.
Band Blow Out Shows: Lights, Camera Action! Twice a year the Rock School Band Students perform at the FriscoPAC on stage with professional equipment, lighting and sound. The Concerts feature each student as a part of the Band as well. With so many different instrumentalists represented, the one-hour Concerts keep the attention of all family members. These Concerts are one of the many highlights of our School, and what keeps students coming back year after year.
