Join a rock band 

in the heart of Edmonton

JOINING A ROCK BAND CHANGES EVERYTHING.

It can be tough to motivate yourself to practice your instrument when there's no immediate end goal. Not to mention it's tiny bit boring to play music by yourself all the time.

Rock band lets you jam with friends once a week and motivates you to practice in a whole new way because your band is counting on you to know your parts. You and your bandmates will learn to work together and you'll push each other to try new things and become better musicians. Plus playing in a rock band builds your confidence like nothing else can.
