Music Centre Canada's Summer of EXTREME ROCK!
In a world where musical education has been limited to classical technique and theory, Music Centre Canadaís EXTREME ROCK! Is the outlet for those who may be more inspired by Metallica than Mozart. The first of its kind in the nation, its purpose is to help young musicians realize the dream of being rock stars in a stimulating and creative educational environment. We aspire to give every child the confidence in their abilities and themselves that they need to rock, as well as the knowledge and experience they need to continue pursuing music as professionals for years to come.
Our one week summer program is designed to be fun. Itís a diet of jamming with band mates, learning the ropes of music business, practicing fun tunes for the big Band Warz finale, some individual coaching with professional musicians and we throw in a little rock history and theory for a well-balanced experience. We group each band together based on individual skill levels and learning pace to ensure that each band can reach their full musical potential. Rehearsals are intense, hands-on sessions and are dedicated to hard work and hard play.
The grand finale of each EXTREME ROCK! Session is a performance including all of the newly formed rock bands in a real venue using professional equipment in front of as many people as possible. If thatís not a rock concert, what is? The rockers show off their newfound confidence and skill and let their inner rock star attitudes shine. It also represents the opportunity to cut a professionally produced demo in our Music Centre Canada Recording Studio to the band that rocks the hardest.
The success of the program isnít dependent on what the instructors teach; itís based on teamwork, peer support and how our rockers choose to apply the experience we supply to them. Guiding rockers with individual passions for music to a place where they can create something together can give them a sense of joint accomplishment greater than they could ever imagine. It helps to set a personal standard of excellence for any other venture they may pursue later in life; individually or with others.
ÖBut all weíre really doing is bringing kids together who share a common goal: TO ROCK.
FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK, WE SCHOOL YOU!
