Adult Rock Bands
Our Adult Rock Bands are geared towards the advanced beginner/intermediate adult player who is interested in jamming on his or her favorite tunes in a fun but challenging atmosphere with like-minded players. The set list is made up of songs brought in by each member of the group in addition to appropriate teacher chosen pieces. The focus of each band will depend upon the interests of the students, but can include early country, 60's rock, punk rock, blues, and alternative rock, just to name a few.
Our adult rock bands focus on:
- Developing musical skills and confidence
- Listening skills within an ensemble setting
- How to give an effective performance
A gig is held at WCMS at the end of each semester where the best tunes are performed in front of family and friends.
- Solid knowledge of one's primary instrument
- Ability to read basic chord charts
- Ability to keep a steady rhythm
- Improv abilities are a plus but not required
- Willingness to try new things and have fun!
