Rock Band Club
Plug In and Rock Out!
Do you play electric/acoustic guitar or bass? Keyboard? Drums? Horn or strings? Sing? Or would you like to start? This October, TEA is kicking off Rock Band After School Club – designed for students interested in forming and performing in a rock band!
Groups of three to six students (see experience requirements in Who section) will combine into bands that will perform together with coach, TEA parent, and accomplished musician, Dave Zimmerman. Club practices will happen once a week for eight weeks.
Each rock band’s focus will be to work up a two to three song music set. Individual members will find their musical strengths, hone instrumental ability, work through band challenges and collaborate to create their best performance.
Who: Rock Band Club is designed for students in grades 4th to 8th (3rd with prior experience). Skill on an instrument is less important than enthusiasm to learn. Club will try to accommodate all levels from intermediate student musicians taking private lessons down to beginners.
When: Bands will meet once a week from 3:00pm to 4:30pm for 8 weeks on Mondays or Wednesdays (see dates below and on the school calendar). Band members / practice days will be assigned accordingly.
- Week 1: Monday 10/18 & Wednesday 10/20
- Week 2: Monday 10/25 & Wednesday 10/27
- Week 3: Monday 11/1 & Wednesday 11/3
