BLACKBIRD
ROCK CO.

OUR FLAGSHIP ROCK BAND

It is our mission to provide students with an authentic and educational rock band experience.  Through this program, musicians in grades 8-12 are offered opportunities to gain further musical  knowledge, grow their individual skill sets, learn how to collaborate within a group setting, and  perform at local venues! 

BRC encourages the celebration of rock music through the ages and song selections will vary  widely. Musicians must be ready to focus on learning repertoire at a fast pace. Dedication to  practicing outside of rehearsal is crucial to the success of the program.
