Youth Rock Bands (Ages 11-18)

Come learn the ins-and-outs of playing with a rock band! You'll learn how to read chord charts, work together with your band members, put a song list together, and prepare to play for an audience. These rock bands are coached by our exceptional faculty members who have outstanding educational credentials, are professional performers, and know how to effectively share their passion, experience, and knowledge of music. A performance is held at WCMS at the end of each semester where the best tunes are performed in front of family and friends.

Drums, amps, keyboards, and PA system are provided.
