ROCK BAND 101
ROCK BAND 101
This is the opportunity for piano, guitar, voice, drums students to participate and learn within a rock band environment. Students learn the basics of learning, arranging and performing their favorite rock/pop songs with a guidance of experienced teacher. This program is specially designed for existing Coppell Music Academy students.
We are forming bands in different age groups. Following are the age grouping:
AGES 8-11 yrs
AGES Ages 11.5-14yrs
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PLAYING IN A BAND?
Kids will learn how to plan, organize and perform their repertoire with their band (which they will name). Students learn what it takes to be part of band, this includes understanding every part (instrument) plays an important role in overall music produced. The activity teaches team work, ability to work with other students, learning new songs, practicing, and joy/ rewards of group accomplishments. Above all, performing in a group will be their most lasting and joyful memory for them!
WHAT ABOUT THEIR REGULAR LESSONS:
To be eligible for Rock Band 101, students have to be enrolled in at least 1 instrument lesson plan (piano, guitar, voice, drum, etc). They have to continue with their regular instrument weekly lesson as normal.
HOW WILL MY CHILD BE ASSIGNED A BAND:
While we primarily want to keep bands based on student age, our band teacher will decide after final audition which band your child should join.
Band members meet once-a-week for 1-hour rehearsal. Each band has different rehearsal days/times, please see days/time in 'upcoming course dates/times' below.
This course runs for 8-weeks.
Unlike your regular music class, joining a band is a commitment. If your child will not be able to attend at least 85% of the sessions (there are no makeup for missed sessions), then we suggest not joining this program. Each student is also committing to learning their parts and achieving recommended practice by your band director.
A course-end concert is held on the last rehearsal day. This is a great way for band members to show off their newly acquired skills and have fun. Here are some videos of recent Rock Band 101 course-end concert:
