WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US AS WE CONTINUE OUR JOURNEY!


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!
