Our Rock Academy performance program is designed as a performance-based learning school of rock music. Our music program combines fun groups of students of similar age and ability that work together to put on an awesome concert! You get to meet other kids that play music and work together to put on a great show.
We have three Session per year; Spring: January to May; Summer: June to August; Fall: September to December. Each Session will have a new theme and students can join in any time of year.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT ROCK ACADEMY
Our music program is designed to teach kids musical proficiency in a fun environment. Just like with any band, practice is key to a great live performance. In addition to a weekly 30 minute Private Lesson, students in Rock Academy will have a two hour weekly group rehearsals at Damm Music Center.
Our session of school highlights music of rock from bands like AC/DC, Foo Fighters, Queen, Green Day, Weezer, Nirvana, The Beatles, System of a Down, Slipknot, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Sabbath, Metallica and many other bands. View sessions below, and click each for more details.
Price & Payments:
The cost of this Session is 4 payments of $219 (there are discounts available to students enrolled in private lessons at Damm Music and students enrolled in other Rock Academy Sessions, see store for details). The fees are due at the first lesson or rehearsal of the month (September, October, November & December). There is a late fee if not paid by the 10th day of the month.
Attendance & Rehearsals:
Students are expected to attend every rehearsal and concert. If you need to miss a rehearsal, please let your Show Director know in advance.
Rehearsals focus on improving the performers as a group, not coaching them on their individual instrument (that?s what private lessons are for). They should review all of their assignments with their private instructor and practice extensively between rehearsals.
Damm Music will provide most of the equipment that will be shared by students: PA System & microphones, amplifiers, keyboards, and basic drum set with cymbals.
Students are required to provide any equipment needed beyond this. We do not provide: guitars, instrument cables, tuners, amp footswitches, effects pedals, picks, drum sticks, double bass drum pedals, additional cymbals, cow bells, tambourines, etc.
Students are responsible for their personal equipment, we do not encourage them to share it with others. They are not allowed to leave anything here, we use the rooms for many other groups and are not responsible for items left here.
If you have any questions please let us know, we want to make sure you have the best experience possible!
