Think of the music you listen to…Does it sound like a person all alone in his/her room? NO! Why not? Because bands have formed the backbone of modern music! So why should you learn music by yourself? A student can expect their musical skills to grow by leaps and bounds once they are placed in one of the schools performing rock band programs. Plus – You get to play LIVE IN CONCERT at a local venue! Your child will be on stage at Blueberry Hill, the Old Rock House, the Ready Room, and more!
REHEARSAL TIME: Each band rehearses once a week for 1.5 hours. Students are encouraged to come early and hang out with their bandmates!
BAND SELECTION: Each band is put together specifically by Jared and the rest of the staff to help each student grow to their potential. Bands are grouped by age, proficiency, and personality to ensure that the and thrives! As students progress through the band levels, they will be given additional performance time and opportunities at the shows.
SONG SELECTION: The program for each upcoming concert is thematic in nature, often reflecting the music of a specific genre, decade or artist. The goal is to give each concert a specific feel, as well as teach students about music they may not know about!
BAND DIRECTORS: Each band is led by one of the school’s highly skilled band directors, who are proficient in every instrument in band.. The band director not only serves as a musical leader, but helps band members develop communication, problem-solving, and leadership skills. STL Rock School specifically hires instructors that are mentors to our students.
