Description: Calling all Middle School guitarists, keyboardists/pianists, drummers, bassists, and vocalists—the Band (MS Rock Band) is back by popular demand! Other instrumentalists are welcome, too! Whether you have little experience or a lot, check out the MS Rock Band, taught by Bullis brass teacher, Ms. Justine Miller, on Thursdays from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m., starting January 4, 2024.
MS Rock Band will be offered in an 8-week session during each trimester, culminating with a performance. Students should have a minimum of one year of experience playing their instrument. Auditions will be held for new members joining the ensemble each trimester. Interested students participating in the Winter Session should prepare their favorite pop/rock selection to audition on dates TBD between 3:40 and 4:30 p.m. The audition will help assess the music level of the group and provide a list of pieces the group can work on during the classes.
Students are responsible for bringing their instrument/voice, cables, drumsticks, accessories, and something to take notes with (notebook, staff paper, and pencil or laptop) to each rehearsal. (Amplifiers, drum set, mics, and keyboards are provided.) More details about how to register for the class will be given upon acceptance. Limit ten (10) students.
