To participate, students must have a solid foundation of playing or singing fundamentals, which typically translates into one year minimum of lessons.
Instrumentalists can also sing lead/back-up vocals if they would like. A note should be made at the time of registration if a student would like to sing in addition to playing their instrument.
Why Choose Rock Band at A Sharp School of Music?
1. We provide a safe, clean rehearsal space
2. We provide the equipment: amps, microphones, drum kit, & keyboards. (Guitarists & bassists provide their own instruments).
3. Our twice yearly recitals and our Student Appreciation Day feature Rock Band performances so students can have real performance experience in front of their family and friends.
4. All of our Rock Band instructors have a college degree in music. Many other Rock Band programs do not require a college degree from their teachers. Our instructors also have many years of teaching experience, and they continue to perform regularly as professional musicians.
5. Students gain valuable musical experience and skills from our program including enhanced musicality, stage presence & performance skills, band dynamics, and overall musicianship.
6. Unlike other schools, we require each student to have a minimum of one year experience on his/her instrument so everyone in the band can focus on making real music right away.
7. If you take lessons elsewhere, you don’t have to enroll in private lessons at our school unless you want to. Other places require students to enroll in private lessons at their school if they want to participate in Rock Band.
8. More value for your time and money. Unlike other schools, students in our program don’t have idle time or lengthy 3 hour rehearsals, where they wait for their turn to play on just one or two songs. Students in our program are actively involved during each rehearsal, so their time (and your money) is respected and valued.

Rock Band S'Cool Practice Tip of the Week June 1, 2020
While you were practicing the hard parts of your music, you may have become tense or frustrated, or forgotten to sing or play musically or with good tone quality or technique. End your practice time by playing or singing something you like that is easy for you. Relax and "perform" it for yourself, playing with your very best technique and musicianship. During this part of your practices, develop a "repertoire" of music that you feel very comfortable and confident playing or singing. Then you'll always have something ready if people ask for a performance.
