Garage Band


Play, collaborate, and create with others in a 'garage' rock band format. Every member will have the chance to try out the various instruments and roles: electric guitar, keyboard, drums and vocals. Through experimentation and practice the group will create its own unique sound.  Students will learn classic cover tunes, new arrangements, how to record (using home recording software), the ‘band’ will choose their own name, share their music on Sound Cloud and burn CD’s to keep. Prior experience on guitar, keyboard, bass or drums would be greatly appreciated, but is not necessary. Advanced Garage Band requires instructor approval.
