In this hands-on session we will discuss setting up a rock band music class. Not the video game! For this, we will examine the www.gslakieguitar.com program. Attendees will leave with the skills and resources to teach their students a well-known classic rock song. We will discuss the guitar, drum, bass and vocal parts for “Old time Rock n Roll” and tackle putting all the parts together so the students can perform it in their “bands”. Topics covered will be equipment needed, warmups, classroom routines and final assessment. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own guitars. This session is ideal for band/choral teachers and teachers interested in starting popular music education programs at their school. Attendees will leave with resource links so they can implement these outcomes in their own classes.
