Rock Band 101 - How to Be In a Band

Have you always wanted to strut your stuff on stage in a real rock band, but have no idea how to get there? Now you can! In this 8-week class, you'll learn how to listen to and play with others, how to set up and adjust amps and drums, and how to arrange songs. You'll learn several songs covering the various essential rock styles. If you're a guitar player, you'll even learn to play a bit of both bass and drums (even if you've never touched either) in order to understand their role in the band.

Scared of performing? Don't worry--this is a no pressure band with an final open rehearsal for your family and friends rather than a full nightclub performance. After this class, you will be prepared to join our Rock Band Program, in a band which performs on stage in a NYC Club. Spots available for Vocals, Keys, Bass, Drums and Guitars Guitarist Requirements: Completed Guitar V: Advanced Beginners or equivalent. Be able to quickly switch between barre chords. Be able to strum entire songs in rhythm without stopping.
