ROCK BAND 101 will strive to teach all aspects of being in a Rock Band; from practice strategies, rehearsals, setting up and tearing down equipment to more cerebral elements such as commitment, teamwork, and self-confidence. We also cover emotional components of interpersonal band dynamics, leadership skills, and group decision-making.
Rehearsals take place at:
MACH 1 MUSIC
1678 Ellington Road
