Kids have all kinds of opportunities these days to learn new things. Now, at the Mike Risko Music School, they can have the opportunity to learn how to be in a band. It doesn't just take being a good musician to be in a band. It takes the ability to collaborate, the ability work together as a team and the ability to learn to shine as an individual within a group. These are just some of the skills kids will aquire in one of our Rock Band Workshops. Under the guidance of a musical coach, kids will play their instrument of choice in a band of their own as they prepare for their very own gig in just 7 weeks.
These classes are made up of students under the guidance of a seasoned pro. These classes give students who want to play in a rock band, the opportunity to learn essential skills they need. Through learning songs and writing songs, students read chord charts, work with other musicians, learn about band equipment, band promotions and play a show. The skills they gain through these classes are invaluable and will not only make them better musicians, but teach them how to have a band of their own.
Bands are put together based on age and level. All instruments and voice are welcome to sign up. In addition, we offer a special program for already formed bands who need some guidance and have specific goals. These classes are offered during the school year and during the summer. For more information, please contact us. We will send you a brochure with all the information including dates and times that the workshops are being offered. For current registration information about rock band workshops please go to register.
