Session 3: Rock Band 101 Ages 8-11
Are you a complete beginner? This is the program for you! Experience the excitement of being part of a band and performing on stage, even if you’ve never played a musical instrument before!
This immersive experience gives beginners the opportunity to build real musical skills under the guidance of expert coaches. In Week 1, you’ll learn the very basics of guitar, drums, bass, keys and vocals from experts--and you’ll have the chance to explore which instruments you enjoy the most. Then, in Week 2 you’ll take those basic skills and rehearse as a band to prepare to perform LIVE on stage in NYC!
Bands are grouped by age. No experience needed. All instruments provided.
Band Rehearsal & Lunch 9:30am-1:30pm
In band rehearsal, kids will collaborate with their instructor and bandmates and work step by step to prepare for the show! The will also learn about the roles of each instrument, how to use amps/microphones/etc, stagecraft (or how to look like a rockstar on stage).
Songwriting, Music Production, and more! 1:30-3:30pm
In the afternoon we mix it up! Kids will get to work with different groups and teachers. Plus, the kids will get to write an original song as a group in Songwriting Class AND create their own beats and music in Music Production. Bonus, we will have games, music listening, and more!
Throughout the week, groups will also do band visits, have a dress rehearsal, and we often have guest speakers too! ...and of course, it's all to get ready for the SHOW - Live on-stage in NYC!
