ARE YOU EXPERIENCED?
TWO 13 WEEK SEMESTERS PER YEAR, CULMINATING IN A SPECIAL BANDMATES PERFORMANCE
FALL SEMESTER: SEPTEMBER - JANUARY / SPRING SEMESTER: FEBRUARY - JUNE
Our Bandmates program is designed to offer young beginner students (ages 8-10) a fun and collaborative introduction to making music in a band context. The curriculum emphasizes foundational musical concepts including rhythm, tempo, pitch, song form and focused listening. The social experience of being in a band and learning how to work creatively with others is at the core of the PSRS mission. The Bandmates program focuses not only on music fundamentals, but also on skills for positive collaboration such as teamwork, listening, sharing and taking responsibility in a common goal. Bandmates will perform in a dedicated Bandmates event open to family and friends. Bandmates prepares young beginners for entry into the PSRS Performance Program, which culminates in a live show at a major rock venue. All classes are held in the 9eme Arr.
