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 recommended 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.
Please note: Rock Bands have rolling registration. Dates and times vary: after registering online, Russ Gershon, BMS Jazz/Rock Coordinator, will contact you to confirm an available time slot that will become your regularly scheduled time.
The goal of all ensembles is for players to improve their understanding of their preferred genres and playing skills, and to have the opportunity to perform at Brookline Music School and off-campus locations. You'll learn from your faculty coach and each other. Enroll with friends, or come meet new friends! We welcome pre-formed groups as well as those making the transition from playing alone to playing as a member of a group. Experience the skill and enjoyment of creating music together!
