Rock School

for Young Rockers!

Ages 5-7

This fun rock band experience was created as an introduction to our Rock School and Summer Rock Camp programs, typically for kids ages 8-18.
The Young Rockers band will be led by a professional, fun, energetic, and experienced instructor who will provide an introduction to guitar, drums, bass, keyboard, and vocals. After choosing their favorite instrument, participants will begin working on basic musical skills as they learn to play a carefully chosen rock song with positive lyrics.

Together with other new young musicians, participants will practice their skills as a group for 90 minutes each week for 6 weeks in a creative, supportive, and enjoyable environment. At the end of the 6 weeks, the Young Rockers band will perform their song on stage in front of family and friends. It is sure to be a performance to remember!

Music education has fantastic benefits for young children, including increased language skills, social skills, and cognitive functioning. The Young Rockers band focuses on encouraging the love of music. It lays a solid foundation for future musical skills while having a LOT of fun!
