Bright lights. Big crowds. Soaring anthems. For today’s kids, in an age of “Rock Band”-style video games, the time-honored dream of rock n’ roll stardom is still alive. The Ann Arbor Music Center’s Rock Band School is ready to help kids bring those dreams to life. Students with a solid foundation in their instrument get both private lessons and full band sessions, learning every step of the rocking process from studio to stage. Now, the Rock Band School hosts an open house on Saturday, October 8, with refreshments and live music from student bands. Meet the school’s instructors, and hear about their combined decades of experience in the music business. It’s the first step on the road to the rock pantheon.
