The Performance Program is designed for musicians (or aspiring musicians) who know the basics of how to play their instrument and are ready to take it to the stage. Students become ready for this program by first participating in our Rock 101 or Private Instruction programs.

Our Performance Program introduces teamwork and collaboration into music instruction. Students will learn harmonies, musicianship and how to perform in an authentic rock show environment.
