STUDENT ROCK BANDS
One of the things that makes the St. Petersburg Music Factory unique, are our Student Rock bands. Here is how it works. While taking music lessons at the Factory, some of our students want to know what it’s like to play in a band. We don’t just tell them what it’s like, we encourage them to see for themselves. For example, a 12 year old Drum student will join forces with a 11 year old guitar student, and maybe a 13 year old bass student. Working with an Instructor for one hour each week, the kids get to learn how to play songs together as a unit. It really is an amazing process to watch, as the kids learn so much faster when they’re doing it TOGETHER. Students get to name their band, pick out the songs they want to play and of course, decide which one of them will actually step up to the microphone and belt out the song. Within a few sessions, and lots of practice on their own time, the students are a full fledged band, complete with their own set list. Once a band is comfortable enough, it’s showtime in front of a audience. Usually once a month, we hold one of our famous St. Pete Music Factory Student Band Showcases, where family and friends are invited out to a local establishment to see how awesome their student musicians actually are. In the past, we’ve had our student bands perform at places in St. Petersburg like the Local 662, Three Daughters Brewing and Ferg’s Sports Bar.
Remember, only Factory Students are eligible to be in a Factory Student Rock Band, so give us a call, book some lessons and get ready to LEARN, PLAY and ROCK!
