FORMING KID BANDS, PRE HIGH SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL!!!!
My 9-year-old daughter Kiersten (aka "Giggles") is looking to form a band! I've offered to help out as well for sound and finding the right kids :)
Kids will rehearse in Longwood each week, once a week and pick songs to learn together. They'll play out once every 8-12 weeks in front of one of the more popular bands in central Florida, and may have access to bigger venues as time progresses!
We are looking for any kids wanting to participate, the fee is $75 per month which goes towards lessons (a much-discounted rate) and allows the students to learn how to work together as well! This beats School of Rock's $250 per month fee by a landslide and gives the kids the same type of atmosphere.
Parents are welcome to stay and watch rehearsals and most importantly, support and encourage your childs musical abilities while they practice at home in between lessons :)
Please read the message below! Afterward, you may contact me (her dad) at kaniption at ya hoo
Message from Rockstar Music School:
"We have kept the school running by sending students directly to teachers, who offer lessons at reduced rates. The teachers keep all of the money since there is no building to pay for.
What we have not done is restart our student bands... UNTIL NOW!
I am happy to announce that we are relaunching the Rockstar Music Foundation bands program! Here is how it works:
- Rehearsals are once a week at our studio in Longwood
- We perform LIVE once every 8-12 weeks
- The shows are at REAL venues (not recitals)
- We try and perform with local bands so the students can see them in action!
We are starting two bands, one will be made up of students in high school. The other will be kids 8 years old or older (but pre-high school).
You need to:
- Learn the songs (we can match you with an instructor if you need one).
- Be at rehearsals weekly (a day will be selected at the bands first rehearsal).
- Be at the shows ON TIME and READY TO PLAY.
We can provide instruments and equipment to use at practice. We will loan out equipment if necessary for students to practice.
The program costs $75 per month (to pay the instructors).
Interested? Send us a PM! We will start as soon as we have a full band!"
