Our Rock Band program takes students from the practice room to the stage. In these 10-week, group classes, students are provided an opportunity to practice together in a team of musical peers. Working closely with our instructors, students choose and learn songs and rehearse together while improving skills and confidence.
Every Rock Band session concludes with a final concert performance at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia!
