SCHOOL OF ROCK

LEARN TO PLAY WITH A REAL LIVE BAND
Group Classes For Guitar, Bass,
Drums, Voice, & Piano

LET'S JAM TOGETHER

You asked for it, and it’s finally here! Resound is now offering its very own School of Rock group class. In addition to your in-home lessons, we’ll be providing students with the opportunity to play with others, learn new songs, and work towards studio recording and live performances. What better way to take you or your child’s musicianship to the next level?

Our unique approach helps students to learn the fundamentals of playing in a band. This performance-based program gives every student who participates the opportunity to work with a team of like-minded musicians, and to perform live in front of an audience as part of an ensemble. Along the way, they will learn to write, record, improvise (and nail the riff from “Purple Haze”). See you on stage!

LEARN NEW SKILLS

Playing with other musicians helps develop an entirely new set of skills you don’t get when practicing by yourself. Students will improve their rhythm playing, improvisation, and overall performance and stage-presence.

PLAY WITH OTHER MUSICIANS

Ditch the karaoke and backing tracks and experience what it’s like playing alongside a group of other real live musicians! Students will work together and challenge one another to grow and develop their musical craft.

HAVE FUN!

Maybe most importantly, students will have fun while they are learning. They’ll work on exciting new projects and make new friends along the way. Let’s not forget that playing in a band is just awesome.

BENEFITS TO STUDENTS

LEARN TO COLLABORATE

Playing in a group will get students working on their teamwork skills. They’re learn to encourage one another and work towards a common goal.

BUILD CONFIDENCE

The class will enable students to develop their confidence both on and off the stage. They’ll grow in their abilities as a performer and be astounded by their progress.

GOAL SETTING

Students will learn the importance of goal-setting and the steps required to get them where they want to be. They’ll create plans to help bring them closer to their goals.

MOTIVATION TO PRACTICE

Band rehearsals will provide students with the excitement and inspiration to take their solo music practice more seriously when the road gets tough.

ABOUT THE MASTER CLASS

Open exclusively to Resound students, the School of Rock group class is designed for those who want to learn what it’s like to play with other musicians. Classes will cover numerous aspects of rock group playing, such as rhythm and timing, soloing, and interacting with other players.

The class will take place at a professional music rehearsal studio in the Langley area. We’ve created a unique curriculum that allows students to set goals and see incremental progress in their group playing abilities over time. Each class, students will receive handouts and sheets with new music, practice tips, and exercises to work on in between monthly sessions.

Repertoire will span a variety of different rock styles from early music of The Beatles, to modern contemporary bands. Students will also have the opportunity to decide on new music together and work on writing some of their own original songs too!

WHAT TO EXPECT

Sessions are taught by expert Resound teachers who specialize in rock band playing. The class will consists of some listening, goal-setting, light jamming, and rehearsing new material. Students will work towards a group recital performance at the end of the year.
