Teen Rock Band Ensemble

$152 ($142 members) · 60 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks · 12-18 years

Are you ready to be in a band? In this class, you'll learn the ins and outs of playing and singing in a rock/pop band. Start learning songs on the first day and discover what makes a professional band successful when they step into the practice room. Ensembles play a wide range of genres like rock, blues, pop, soul, funk, R&B, and anything else you can play through an amp. We encourage the ensemble to solidify a few songs to play at our monthly Teen Open Mic. This class prepares students to run their own rehearsals and put on shows in Old Town School's Teen Arts Collectives.


Minimum of 6 months of lessons or classes in your primary instrument or voice is required. Guitar and keys players should be able to play common chords. Bass players should know how to follow a chord chart. Drummers should be able to play common rock and pop beats with a steady tempo. Vocalists should be able to match pitch and learn by ear.
