ETBMusic and Fine Arts Center Rock Band Outline and Policy
ETB Rock Band Classes are an amazing opportunity for students of all ages, skill levels, instruments, and musical tastes to experience the components of being in a true rock band: from practice to gear set-up to live performances and sound/video production as well as camaraderie among fellow musicians. There are not many other places in Cincinnati that offer this type of opportunity! Please note the following guidelines for Rock Band classes, so we can ensure the most complete and positive experience for everyone involved.
The FIRST requirement is the 90 minute weekly rehearsal at the specific time given for your student each week. The SECOND requirement is a 30 minute (or more) weekly private lesson with a designated instructor at the studio. The THIRD requirement is the show at the end of class session, which will be in January. FOURTH, we will produce a "tiny desk" video. We will set up microphones on all instruments for a pro audio sound, and we will also have multiple cameras to create a very professional performance. It will then be uploaded to Facebook and Youtube and made to share.
Students are expected to be at EVERY lesson and rehearsal. This is very much a team/group oriented experience, and everyone has a unique and important role in the band.
The goal is for each band to learn a number of songs, depending on the group’s abilities, difficulty of material, and time each student spends practicing outside of the class.
PAYMENT/FEES: Payments will be made via credit card through our payment/scheduling platform, Wellness Living. Four equal monthly payments of $94.50 will be processed on the first of each month from October-January. This payment covers the cost of group rehearsals, music video recording session, and live performance(s). Additionally, students are required to register for weekly private lessons for the duration of the rock band session. Fees vary, depending on the instructor and length of the lesson. ($84-$100 per month)
CANCELLATION POLICY: In the event that something comes up and a student cannot make a class, we cannot refund the cost of the class for that week, since the rest of the students will still be at the rehearsal, and one of the teachers will need to fill in for the missing student on their instrument so that the class can proceed. Please notify John at your earliest convenience of any instances where you will be unable to attend class. 513-608-7798. Private lessons may be rescheduled IF AT LEAST 24 hours advance notice is given for a cancellation. (See studio policy.)
GOOGLE DRIVE: Parents will be given a link to our google drive setup. We will link as many parents and students email addresses as requested to access all music, recordings, lyrics etc. on the google drive site or google drive app. Its completely free. By doing that, we keep all of the written music in the studio to avoid losing/forgetting music.
SOCIAL MEDIA: By participating in this class, you are granting permission for ETBMusic and Fine Arts Center to use videos or photos of rehearsals and shows to post on public sites like Facebook, Youtube, or Instagram.
If you have any other questions about the class outline or policy, please let us know! Thank you so much for joining our mission to share the gift of music!
