Students will be able to:

  • Learn the basics of instruments including keyboard, guitar, and drums
  • Expand their knowledge of these instruments if they already have experience

Sit around the turntable to listen to your favorite vinyl records. Explore all instruments during Morning Jam Session. Find your inner producer in GarageBand. Sounds like a great summer at School of Rock! Students will explore classic and emergent musical styles while learning basic music theory and song structure. Each student will choose one instrument of focus (electric guitar, electric bass, keyboards, drums/percussion), but all students will develop vocal skills. Explore the possibilities of composing digital music projects on GarageBand and go deep into the digital audio workspace. Every student will be involved in the process of creating music. Let’s rock!
