WELCOME BACK ROOKIES
Autumn is upon us and with it, the return of our Rookies Program! This popular and exciting program is an amazing opportunity for your kids to build a foundation to learn and love music! Class meetings are listed below
- Tuesdays @ 4:00 PM
- Fridays @ 4:00 PM
Creating original songs can be one of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences for musicians. School of Rock’s Songwriting Program teachers the fundamentals of songwriting, arrangement and music theory, and helps students compose original works. Students have one weekly private lesson on an instrument of their choice where they learn concepts, technique, and theory. These principles are then applied in weekly group lessons where students work together on songwriting exercises and lyrical workshops. Every few months, Songwriting Program students record their original songs. Students taking the Songwriting Program online will remotely record their original songs to produce a demo of the class’s music!
