Project Rock Band is for all students who would like to play in a rock band with other young musicians. Classic songs are learned and performed by enthusiastic students in a fun supportive environment. The bands will focus on performing skills, group dynamics, theory, arranging, song writing and having fun as a member of a band. Playing in a supportive team environment allows students to build playing confidence, leadership skills and musicianship. Not to mention that because our students meet every week as a unit, they sound great!
We believe that when music is fun, presented in a supportive environment, using materials that inspire practice and commitment, students develop a love and understanding for music that will last a lifetime. With twenty-five professional music instructors currently on staff we can accommodate all levels and styles of music and music students. From Pop, Rock, Classical, Jazz, Folk, Songwriting, Improvisation, Campfire, Theory, Site-Reading, Introductory thru Advanced Group Classes our teachers provide students with a sound musical education.
We are proud to offer the Bay Areas most fun, hands on, Rock and Roll Summer Camps. We specialize in helping musicians ages 8-18 realize their full potential in music and in life. Our week long Rock and Roll Boot-Camps are a glimpse in to what we do at the School of Rock year round. Of course, as with everything we do here, our camps culminate with a real Rock and Roll show put on by our Boot-Campers.
From the moment a student joins one of our schools they are playing music; loud, on professional equipment with other musicians. Before long, our students are playing live rock concerts. These are not your old fashioned wait -through-fifty-other-students mangling-their-songs- until-your-child’s- turn-arrives recitals, but real rock concerts at real rock venues in front of real rock audiences.
