Rock Band Ensemble

This course is an ensemble geared towards introducing the basics of rock instruments/vocals; the end goal is having experienced learning a myriad of musical skills and creating a band that can perform together. Students will learn the basic performance skills for common rock band instruments, including piano/keyboard, guitar, bass, percussion, and vocals. Over the course of the semester, students will try every instrument and singing; by midterms, each student will select one or two instruments/voice parts that they want to focus on at the end of semester performance. While this course is aimed towards students who want to learn the basics of rock instruments/voice, it is also a great course for those who have a lot of instrument/vocal training as they can be a leading expert in something they’re familiar with while also getting to try new things! This ensemble would perform together at the end of the Spring Semester.
