Rock Write & Record I /GirlPop I (Exploration Bands) - AGES 9-11 


Rock, Write and Record I (Exploration) is a class where students have the unique opportunity to learn how to write and play music with others in a band setting. Through drum circles, BLAM games, speed songwriting sessions, and bandstand work, this class is for students who still want to explore different instruments while learning the fundamentals of what it takes to create and play in a band. In addition, RWR students have the opportunity to record their original song.

Should my child do band or private lessons?


 Some students do one or the other, some do both. Which one makes the most sense just depends on your child and his/her goals and interests. In private lessons, students focus on their instrument of choice, developing instrument-specific skills and techniques, while also learning non-instrument specific skills like rhythm, ear training and theory. In band, students learn how to make music as a band, writing songs, playing music games and building their music fluency. Choose private lessons to focus on a particular instrument, band to focus on broader music skills, or both for the complete package!
