WHAT WE OFFER

Rock Band 101 is an ensemble class teaching school-age children and adults what it takes to put a band together, rehearse, and perform at a high-level gig! 

We promote a positive experience geared towards success. Being in Rock Band 101 is much more than just playing music.  Some of the underlying benefits to this program are...  

  • Organizational skills 
  • Time management 
  • Goal setting 
  • Accomplishing smaller tasks toward a higher goal 
  • Meeting deadlines 
  • Responsibility (to bandmates, learning songs, being on time) 
  • Leadership skills 
  • Teamwork
  • Enhanced listening
  • Following instructions
  • Support system for bandmates 
  • Democratic decision-making 
  • Compromise 
  • Building self-esteem 
  • Building confidence 
  • Conquering and overcoming fears/anxiety 
  • Public speaking/performance 
  • Sense of accomplishment 


All of these skills/benefits can and will transcend Rock Band 101 and filter into the everyday lives of all who participate.
 
Beginner students are encouraged to join, although some ability to play songs must be present to be successful. 

 

Beginner and advanced bands ensure proper placement of students for guaranteed success.

Each session ends with a high-profile public gig. Sometimes several gigs during a session!

 
Private lessons are not required to join Rock Band 101. 
(but it doesn't hurt)

 

 

"Rock Band 101 doesn't make great kid bands, we make great bands who happen to be kids. Each band can perform from 1 to 3 hours of material and are highly entertaining to a large cross-section of audience. Our concerts are very popular with music lovers whether they are connected to the program or not."
