This will be a one semester course. Students will learn how to play their instruments all together as a group, like in a real rock band! Once you register for the class, you will be contacted by the Center to attend an audition sometime in July. Being a part of this class depends on the students' abilities and proficiency with their instrument. We are looking for all positions: rhythm guitar, lead guitar, keyboard, bass, drums, vocalist.
However, we will only be able to pick 2 per instrument, so it will be important to register early if interested.
Students will demonstrate proficiency in these basic skills:
Understand a variety of musical notation styles, including but not limited to:
traditional musical notation
Nashville number system
Demonstrate improvisational skills via their knowledge of musical theory
Understand the nuances of all genres of popular music
Have a keen knowledge of their function in a group
Understand performance techniques that captivate an audience
Understand basic set-up and function of sound equipment
Sing backup vocals anywhere required while playing their primary instrument
The semester will end with the opportunity to perform in our Spring recital.
