Our Band Program Is Now Open To Everyone!

Next Session Begins in September!

We are excited to announce that the Rock School 101 program is now available to students who study an instrument outside of Modern Day Music. (The Rock School 101 program has previously only been available to students who are enrolled in private lessons at Modern Day Music.)

If you would like the experience of playing in a band, Rock School 101 is a great way to make new friends and build camaraderie while learning to master your instrument.

Nothing is more fun than playing live concerts with your band!

The next session will begin in September, with a live performance to follow the 10 week session. All ages are encouraged to audition.
 
In Rock School 101 You Get:

  • Structured/ Produced Group Jam Sessions for 1.5 hours every weekend for 10 weeks.
  • At least one Rock School Performance Show at the end of the session.
  • $375 for the 10 week session and show. ($275 for members)
  • An audition will be required to determine placement with one of the bands.
  • Contact Us To Schedule Your Audition!
