Field Trips

  • Bring your students to Youth Music Project for an unforgettable Rock Band Experience

    Go one-on-one with an electric guitar, command a drum set, and compose your own keyboard solo. Write your own song lyrics and practice the moves of chart-topping singers. At the end, sing and dance in a mini-concert by our instructor rock band.

    COURSE DESCRIPTION: Students receive hands-on experience on a variety of instruments, along with ear training, rhythm, music theory, history, and some fun games. Each student strums a guitar or ukulele, plays rock beats on a drum set, and improvises on the piano. They also practice being a lead singer, dancing and writing their own lyrics to a classic rock song. At the end, the students rock out to a show by the instructor band!

    AGES AND LEVELS: Our instructors tailor the field trip for your group’s age and level, from advanced high school musicians down to first grade explorers. Please tell us about your students’ skill level and interests. Call us about adult opportunities.
