This class is open to all rock musicians and rock enthusiasts. We will study song structure, song writing, and how to be a conscious consumer of music. Additionally, we will learn the basics of rock instruments and form a small band or bands to perform in the Spring Concert.
Students will be able to recognize the elements of music (melody, harmony, rhythm, timbre, etc.) in the pieces that they perform and listen to. They will understand the culture context of the music that we study in class and how it relates to history and culture. Students will leave with the basic skills to perform on a rock instrument (guitar, bass, percussion, voice.)
