all happening at Headwaters Music & Arts
Headwaters Music & Arts kicks off the fall with their first school year Rock Band program. An extension of Headwaters’ very successful Rock Band Boot Camp held this summer, the program is a ‘group performance’ class for musicians ages 10 to 16. Held seasonally with three 6 class blocks to choose from, participants will meet up on alternating Sundays, 1-3:30pm at Headwaters (519 MN Ave NW, Bemidji). The fall block will start October 2 and end December 11 with a final rock show performance for family and friends scheduled for Saturday, December 17.
Headwaters Rock Band is a program for young musicians who want to learn how to play and perform in a live band by actually doing it! Led by local musicians Lisa Dixon and Casey Rasmussen, the class will cover everything from chord progressions, counting bars, and song sections to exactly how gigging musicians communicate and come alive with their fellow bandmates in a live setting. This will be a fun and exciting chance for aspiring performers to learn the basics of playing rock and pop music. Let’s take the music out of our bedrooms and onto the stage!
Headwaters has a limited number of instruments and amplifiers available for participants to use. Headwaters will provide keyboards and a drum kit, however for all other equipment participants should reach out to Headwaters to make arrangements in advance of the class if they do not have their own. The cost to attend the fall block of Rock Band is $180 per participant with limited financial assistance available. Space is limited, advance registration is required.
