Rock Band 101 - Spring Session

Our popular program Rock Band 101 is returning again this fall, beginning the week of March 12th!

It’s time to rock! Rock Band 101 is a 10 week program which will explore everything that goes into creating, recording, and performing Music with others. Students will rehearse and write together once per week, receive mentorship from multiple Academy teachers from vocals to soundchecks, and will learn the ins and outs of recording a single and performing it at a live gig. 
Rock Band 101 is for students of all ages with two years of experience or more on their instrument. Instruments including voice, guitar, bass, drums, violin, and piano/keyboard are welcome! Taking students' individual practice to the next level, Rock Band 101 will tackle the process of writing original songs as a group, as well as studying and covering existing favorites. The program will culminate with the bands recording a track in May, and then performing a live gig at the Academy Festival Awards night on June 2nd! 
Students will learn:
songwriting and arrangement 
elements of a performance
collaborating with other musicians
finding your voice, and expressing yourself through Music
technical know-how and vocabulary; hands-on stage experience sound checking and performing
Students will meet for one hour weekly, for the weeks of March 12th through May 21st. 
Students will be grouped according to age and level, taking scheduling availability into account.
The groups will record one song each in a live session at Rainy Day Recording Co. in June; date TBD.
The rock bands will perform at the Academy Festival Awards June 2nd!
