Rock Academy (Week of July 11)


Giving you the space to shine.

This workshop meets the week of July 11 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM each weekday.

Add To Cart

In this workshop, you’ll play lots of actual songs with actual people. In the process, you will also learn:

  • Timeless rock songs and artists of the sixties, seventies, eighties, and nineties and what made them so influential.
  • Prompts, games, and tricks that will help you and your fellow participants get comfortable getting creative together.
  • How to adapt your instrument to the sound of the group, finding your own sonic space.
  • The three chords that you should try first when you're figuring out a song - plus the four chords that give rock its distinctive gritty sound
  • How to figure out what key a song is in.
  • Scales, simplified - just what you need in order to get started.
  • Communication tricks that will help you all start and end together, or even make changes to the music as it's happening.
  • Licks, riffs, and patterns that will sound good right away - and how to create your own.

The workshop will end with a concert for family and friends. You won't want it to end, though!
