JR. ROCK BAND

LEARNING MUSIC SHOULD ROCK

JR. ROCK BAND WILL GET YOUR CHILD EXCITED ABOUT MUSIC LIKE NOTHING ELSE CAN.

Playing in a rock band changes everything. Learning to play an instrument on your own can be both lonely and unmotivating.

Jr. Rock Band allows your child to be part of their very own rock band. Your child will be challenged to grow and learn what it means to play live music with other musicians. Not to mention, they'll also get awesome performance opportunities that will help grow their confidence.

The fastest way to get rock band ready, is by registering for our Intro Series program.

JR. ROCK BAND Q & A

We want to take the needed time to make sure we have a rock band that's right for your child. 

After you complete our registration form, we'll reach out to learn more about your child. We also might initiate a placement jam* to help us better understand where your child is at musically.

*A placement jam is when we invite you and your child in for a relaxed, 15 minute jam session so we can see where they're at on their instrument. This allows us to recommend the band that's best suited to them.

No. Jr. Rock Band is the perfect way for your child to try playing in a band for the first time. 

To play in a Junior Rock Band, however, your child does need to have completed one of our Intro Series - Level I classes or have taken a minimum of 1 year of private lessons on their instrument.  

We want your child's first experience playing in a rock band to be as awesome as possible!

This is why we highly recommend they take an Intro Series - Level II class or private lessons while playing in a band. This will give your child the opportunity to work through any "tough parts" from Jr. Rock Band in an instrument-specific or one-on-one setting.   

If your child is already taking music lessons somewhere else and they have a great connection with their teacher, then we don't want to get in the way of a good thing! 

As long as your child is taking music lessons somewhere, they should have the support they need to thrive in Jr. Rock Band.

 

We get that life happens and you can't always make your band practice.

Due to their group nature, Jr. Rock Band rehearsals cannot be rescheduled or refunded. 

Your child can join Jr. Rock Band almost anytime!

The ability to join a rock band is more dependant on the right rock band being available at a time that works for you and your child's schedule. 

To join Jr. Rock Band, simply complete our online registration form and we'll reach out to let you know your next steps!

Payments are simple and they are done on a monthly basis.

After confirming your rock band time,  you will be asked to enter your credit card information into a secure online portal. Then, your credit card will be automatically charged at the beginning of every month.
