For many, learning to play their instrument is just the first step towards the ultimate goal of playing in a band. Finding the right group of people, a good place to rehearse, the right guidance and most importantly, a place to perform can be a real challenge. Don't sweat it, the Rock Band Experience has you covered ...
Electric Rock Band ... Age 13- Adult
Our core band program based around classic "electric guitar" rock music. Bands typically consist of one or two guitars, a bass, drums and sometimes keyboards. Vocals are often covered by instrumental band members but vocalists who do not play and instrument are welcome in our programs. Bands are formed by grouping people of similar ages, similar playing abilities and similar musical preferences. Our goal with every band is for the players to grow their musical abilities while playing music that they love all while having a great time.
Acoustic Rock Band ... Age 13 - Adult
Our new version of our band program designed for people who want to play in an acoustic guitar based band. Musical styles would include acoustic pop, new country and folk music. Bands would consist of 2-3 guitarist and may be exclusively acoustic or possible include an electric player or mandolin/banjo as well. Bass, drums, keyboards as well as vocalist would make up these bands. As with the electric program, members will be grouped by playing ability, age and musical preference. Again, the goal is to help participants explore the fun and excitement of playing in a real band while growing their abilities.
