KidzRock January 2019
Explore your inner Rockstar!
Back by popular demand! Over the course of 8 weeks band members, ages 4 to 7, will rotated on drums, electric guitar, and keyboard to prepare to sing and play in their end-of-session concert. Instructor Nate Wieland teaches students to become young rockers who will perform LIVE here at the Richland Academy.
KidzRock is a music program developed by musician Dave Simon that teaches children as young as 4 how to play an instrument in the setting of a rock band. Children learn how to read color-coded standard music notation while playing on modified instruments for smaller sized hands. Easy-to-play songs especially written for children allow these young rockers immediate access to performing and singing in a rock band. The program creates a unique experience by combining instruments, theory, singing, and ensemble.
