Designed for serious rock band performers, this program is an opportunity for students to explore the entire process of staging a full rock show: selecting material, creating transcriptions, arranging charts, rehearsing with a band and performing on stage.
Enrollment is limited to 30 students who will be placed into bands consisting of lead guitar, rhythm guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and vocalists. All instrumentalists will be encouraged to sing as well.
Daily theory classes include ear-training, transcription, form, song composition, and the history of rock music.
Topics covered include:
- Band etiquette (interpersonal and musical ensemble skills)
- The formal structure and history of the music
