Have you ever dreamed of becoming a star!  Want to have a fun and unique experience?  This summer Arboretum Music School will be offering two Rock Band Classes!  Each band will need singers, guitarists, bassists, keyboardists and drummers.  The bands rehearse weekly culminating in a performance at the Brink Lounge in Madison on Tuesday, August 27 from 6-8.  

Both Rock Bands will rehearse during the summer semester (June 11-August 21) from 7:30-9:00pm, excluding the week of July 4, for a total of 10 classes for each group. The Middle School Rockband will rehearse Tuesday evenings and the High School Rockband will rehearse Wednesday evenings.

The price of the Rock Band Class will be $250 for Arboretum Music School students who are also taking private summer lessons and $325 for students not enrolled in private summer lessons.  Payment for rock band is non-refundable and due the first night of rehearsal. 

This could be your big break! Contact us if you are interested or have in questions!


Importance of Summer Lessons

Learning to play an instrument is not only a fun and rewarding activity, but it also engages almost every part of the brain simultaneously. All of that consistent practicing will add up and playing music will become easier as your brain gets better at processing all the information. That newfound strength can then be applied to other, non-musical activities. 

In fact, practicing is the key to learning any new skill. Routine practicing allows for the repetition needed to move the new information from short-term to longterm memory. It helps create the muscle memory needed to play or sing. 

We highly encourage your student to continue to take lessons in the summer. A gap of three months in a students growth can erase months of progress and eliminate the current momentum.

Arboretum Music School is currently registering students for summer music lessons. Talk to your teacher today to reserve your summer lesson time.  Enjoy the flexible summer scheduling and credits that are allowed over the summer to coordinate with your summer vacations, while still allowing your child to continue and progress in their music studies.
