This summer children and teens – ages 10 – 16 years – can experience the fun and excitement of playing in a band. Get together with other players at a week long music program to develop and perform as a group. The summer program will meet daily, 11am – 2pm, Monday—Friday, ending with a finale performance at a City Music in-house concert. Players should be able to play basic chords and rhythms on their instruments. This is a summer activity for young musicians that want to connect with other players, and see what it is like to play in a band setting.
Two sessions will be held at City Music Leominster:
July 24-28 and August 14-18.
City Rockers Summer Program fee – $269 per week (+active registration fee*) Sign up for 1 or both weeks.
