Songwriting

Students in Advanced Rock Write Record focus heavily on songwriting and creating a unique sound for their band.  These bands work on multiple songs at a time (both covers and originals) as students start digging even deeper into the ins and outs of their instrument, harmony, and song arrangement. 

6 Reasons Everyone Needs to Play Music

Music builds confidence. Every part of a musical group is essential and being part of that big picture is huge. Whether it’s one note , or a massive solo, the group needs you and pulling that off builds confidence. Huge confidence.

Music is about communication. Playing in a band isn’t that different from playing a sport when it comes to how essential it is to communicate with others.  Get good at that, and you’ve got a skill you can use in music and beyond.

Music is about creativity. From songwriting to arranging a cover tune, music challenges kids to imagine new possibilities.  And when done as a team, the possibilities are endless.

Music is ridiculously fun. Forget about the piano lessons you took as a kid that you begged to quit for years. Fun is one of the main two motivators for a child and there’s nothing more fun than playing music with your peers. These band classes are a blast!

Making music is work. There is no sugar coating the fact that developing the tools to make music with others demands a work ethic. Musicians can learn alone but there is nothing like the motivation of others to take it to the next level.

Music requires skills. Playing in a band is the best way we know to get kids to deal with the fact that playing an instrument or singing on key….well….it ain’t always easy. A band helps each musician define the exact skills they need. And better yet gives them a clear goal for their practice time at home.
