Youth Rock Bands

Age 12-17

Do you want to play new and old rock and pop songs but don’t quite know how to get the music together? In this ensemble, an experienced coach will show you what you need to know to go from practicing alone to being in a band. You will be performing onstage by the end of the semester! Repertoire will include the classic songs and styles that all rockers learn, as well as songs suggested by our students.

It is recommend that students have studied their instrument for two or more years OR have achieved an equivalent level of proficiency with the ability to read music OR have received permission from the instructor.

Rock Bands begin in October and will run for 14 weeks

Please note:  After registering online, Russ Gershon, our Jazz/Rock Coordinator will contact you to confirm an available time slot that will your regularly scheduled time.

Performing Ensembles

Performing ensembles at Brookline Music School offer students the unique chance to work together in a social, collaborative atmosphere to sharpen their musical skills and have fun! Ensemble playing requires members to listen carefully to themselves and each other, building a strong sense of rhythm and meter, and a keen ear for intonation, articulation, and dynamics. Students of classical chamber music will be exposed to new composers, forms, and styles that will expand their musical imagination and knowledge. Jazz, pop, and rock ensembles allow endless group combinations and stylistic possibilities for instrumentalists and singers alike.

Placement in an ensemble is based off of an informal placement audition. Each group will receive a weekly coaching with one of our distinguished faculty members.
