Rock 101

 

Rock 101 is one of Good Times major programs for beginners.  It combines our core philosophy of performance-based music education with a unique curriculum designed for kids with no previous musical experience.  Students have one weekly group rehearsal where they can learn classic rock songs that have been simplified specifically for beginner musicians.  These rehearsals get young musicians to learn the fundamentals of their instrument while playing with a band in a positive and fun atmosphere. Students also have a weekly private music lesson with an instructor who will help them rehearse performance songs while teaching them the foundational music skills and concept.

 

The goal of this rock program is to quickly develop a basic competence on students' chosen instruments before moving on to our Beginning Rock program.

Beginning Rock 
 
For those who have graduated from Rock 101 OR have an evaluation lesson.  This program consists of a weekly group rehearsal where kids and teens learn by playing rock music's most iconic songs with a band composed of their peers.  Students are assigned songs and parts that are tailored to them based on their age, experience, and ability to learn new skills and concepts.  Students then work through their parts and refine the skills and concepts that those songs introduce.  The goal of this curriculum is to prepare kids and teens for live performances.
 
Skills to be passed off in order to move on to Intermediate

  • Playing a whole song on instrument with 85% accuracy
  • Perform at final show

Dream Team

 

For those who audition to join our "House Band".  The Dream Team program gives students under 18 the opportunity to join a gigging band composed of fellow musicians from Good Times.  These students perform additional live shows throughout the year.  All students in our rock program have the opportunity to audition for a spot in Good Times House Band.  Once selected, House Band members become leaders in the Good Times  community and perform live shows at local rock venues throughout the year.

Private lessons for guitar, bass, keyboard, vocals, and drums

 

We strongly believe that private lessons will help accelerate your students ability to grow and learn as a musician.  If you don't already take lessons from someone, we will work to help you find the best teacher to fit your choice of instrument and music genre.
