Rock Band for Kids 4-9yrs
The Music Connection is excited to announce the launch of our new program called Kidzrock.
Kidzrockis a music lessons program that teaches children as young as 4 how to play an instrument in the setting of a real rock band. Band members rotate on drums, electric guitar, and keyboard as they prepare to sing and play in a rock concert. Each band sings and performs songs featured on the Kidzrock CD. The songs are composed specifically for the program and use simple music patterns allowing this age group immediate access to musical performance.
Children learn how to read color-coded standard music notation from the Kidzrock Songbook while playing on modified instruments for smaller sized hands. The program creates a unique experience by combining instruments, theory, singing, ensemble performance and rock ‘n’ roll fantasy all rolled into one.
All instruments are provided by Kidzrock and there are no practice expectations outside of the class. Sign up below for one of our classes.
Kidzrock Summer: There are two summer sessions Session 1 and Session 2. Different songs are used in each session. Children ages 4-7 must have taken at least one Kidzrock 1 and meet age requirement to enter Kidzrock 2/Songwriting. Children who are 8 or 9 yrs. may enter Kidzrock 2/Songwriting without previous Kidzrock 1. There are no makeups for missed classes.
Jr. Rockerz Music Lessons
Jr. Rockerz is an innovative music program that teaches kids how to play, write, and sing songs in the setting of a rock band. Students in Jr. Rockerz play instrumental songs and compose their own lyrics to accompany the tune. The music is custom designed for younger musicians to allow immediate access to the rock band experience. This unique program allows the complete beginner to participate in a rock band before taking a single music lesson. Each song in the Jr. Rockerz program contains sheet music for both the complete beginner and the more experienced musician taking private lessons. As students build their skill set they can transition into a more challenging part to learn more advanced musical concepts. Sign up below for one of our classes.
