After School Club

Rock Band Club

Plug In and Rock Out!

Do you play electric/acoustic guitar or bass? Keyboards? Drums? Horns or strings? Sing? Or would you like to start? Back by popular demand, participating students (and their fans) will continue to rock – it’s the Roaring 20s after all! 

Instructed by accomplished musician and TEA parent Dave Zimmerman. Club practices will happen once a week for eight weeks, with potential for a spring performance. Each rock band’s focus will be to work up a two to three song set of music. Individual members will find their musical strengths, hone instrumental ability, work through band challenges and collaborate to create their best performance. 

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. There’s no better time to start rocking out than right now, with this awesome club offering.

Who / Experience: Rock Band After School Club is designed for students in grades 4th to 12th. 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. 

Timing: Bands will meet once a week from 3:00pm to 4:30pm for 8 weeks. Band members / practice days will be assigned based on age, ability, availability, instrument preference and preferred practice day. Confirmed days schedule to our school calendar – here.

Capacity: Bands will be formed based on age, experience/musical interests and best practice days with 5-6 members per band. We will do our best to place anyone interested into a band, but may be limited based on instruments (3 drummers just won’t work) and scheduling.
