Welcome to the Rock Band!
This is the elective ensemble in Class 6 and 7 and we meet on Fridays for an hour at 11:45am during term time. This group is for singers, guitarists, and pianists, with a solid rhythm section of Bass and Drums to keep us moving along in time.
We are working on some well-known contemporary rock songs by artists such as Nirvana, The Clash, Blink 182, and are expanding our repertoire very quickly.
A key learning point in Class 6-7 rock band is self management. Therefore, students are expected to:
- be on time
- bring all equipment and sheet music necessary for the rehearsal
- learn to be productive in an ensemble through having listened and learned the tunes before rehearsal
- experience success through practising the music consistently prior to the rehearsal
- enjoy orderly rehearsal technique by not interrupting the coach, putting hands up and being ready to play as quickly as possible.
- listening and observing how the instruments work together to create a rich texture of music
We look forward to playing in front of an audience very soon!
