STAMFORD, Conn. -- Do you have a budding rock star in your family looking to take the stage? Stamford's Institute of Rock begins a new 12-week session for rock-n-rollers ages 11 to 16 on Saturday.
A combination of one-on-one instruction and band rehearsals will culminate in a pair of gigs in a live stage setting in front of family and friends.
Students will study, through observation and practical experience, the basics of setting up a band. They will also study sound with our sound engineers, discuss the benefits of analog and digital recording and leave the program with a CD of their performance.
Songs of choice will include a classic such as U2, Beatles or Rolling Stones and contemporary pieces from bands such as Linkin Park.
Students meet for one hour each Saturday in beginner, intermediate and advanced sessions. The cost is $200 per month.
Private lessons are also available for guitar, voice and piano for $50 for a half-hour and $100 for an hour.
