Rockshop II (12-15 yrs)*

  • Fall term: Sept - Dec (12 weeks)

*Previous instrument/voice experience (one year of lessons or demonstration of ability), or training such as Studio Singers is recommended prior to enrolling in this class.

For 10-15 year olds who want to play in a band, we give kids a place to learn age-appropriate Pop and Rock songs that challenge them and build confidence as they grow. Listening skills, teamwork, shared decision-making and, of course, improved musicianship are all benefits of this camp.

Our coaches guide and support kids in their music choices and model how to work successfully with others in impassioned environments.

The Bands showcase their efforts at our Winter and Spring Concerts, as well as in the Spring term, each Band enjoys a recording studio experience. They go into a local recording studio to record their best songs in a three-hour recording session.

To sum up, it’s remarkable what these young musicians can accomplish, and through it all, we also have a lot of fun!
