KAOS Student's Crush the Rock Recital!
Another session of hard work pays off for the participants of the KAOS Rock Band Experience. This program brings together people of various ages and organizes them into rock bands based on age, ability and musical preference. This is a pretty new program for us here at KAOS, only about 5 months old but it has really been met with positive results. In just our second session, we had 4 bands participating. 2 bands made up of teenagers and 2 made up of, well, older guys. Yours truly was one of those aforementioned older guys playing drums in one of the adult bands.
At the end of each session, we hold a performance featuring each band playing a 15-20 minute set. All four bands did well and more importantly, did better then the first session in my opinion signifying improvement. I can speak for myself when I say that my playing has gone from mediocre to way better then mediocre in the past 5 months. Just getting out to play once per week combined with a ton of practice :) well okay, a bit of practice has produced really encouraging results for me and, I suspect for the others as well. One thing is for sure, you can't deny the rush you get from playing rock music, on stage really loud for an audience. The Rock Band Experience, it's a cool program.
If you'd like to know more about it, you can read about it here on our site or contact me directly, I'd be happy to talk about it with you.
