Kids or adults take voice, string, woodwind, or brass lessons, or celebrate birthdays by singing or playing in a fun setting
Bach to Rock's teaching philosophy adheres to one simple belief: learning to play music should be fun. To that end, the instructors teach students to play the music they want to play, from classical solos to rock 'n' roll riffs.
Individual classes cover drums, piano, voice, guitar, and bass, as well as string, brass, and woodwind instruments. Group classes and camps let kids join a rock band or a glee club, or learn the fundamentals of piano, guitar, or drums. More advanced classes cover music production and ProTools technology. The teachers can also help pupils prepare for the NYSSMA (a New York state music test), or help students with special needs improve communication, social, and cognitive skills during adaptive music lessons. Aside from classes, Bach to Rock offers birthday parties in which kids can sing karaoke or complete their long-awaited rock opera. Adults aren't left out, either—corporate parties foster teamwork skills by having participants form bands and perform classic hits.
