About the Professional Band Mentoring
Consistently at the cutting edge of music education and rock performance, Rock Guru in School Rock Band Training gives Guitarists, Singers, Drummers, Bassists, and Keyboard players the ability to find and form a band, and then take their playing to the next level with a focus on performance based learning, and interactive team work. Many students from our parent programme School of Rock have gone on to work successfully in careers as performers, sound engineers, and event management and teaching roles in the music industry both nationally and internationally. Our commitment to teen musicians is that we will teach them "what comes next", and use our internationally recognized syllabus to both improve their playing, while bonding as friends and band mates in the excitement and adrenaline that live performance always provides. Our programmes have been designed to foster NZ's next generation of music industry leaders. Join us by booking a no obligation, stress free audition today!
