Project Description

Rock band courses for children

Our Rock band course is designed for children aged 6 to 13 who have a passion for pop or rock music. By attending both a private lesson and a band rehearsal weekly, they will have the immense opportunity to improve their technical skills under the guidance of an expert instructor while learning how to play in a group format.

At Kids Rock, we wish all our pupils to benefit from the highest music instruction and enjoy the learning process tremendously. Being able to play with others is an essential aspect of musicianship that is often neglected at more traditional music schools. It is our aim and vision to offer your child such a peripatetic music education that he or she will be able to adapt to any setting in his adulthood.

Playing in a rock band will provide your children with some unique advantages and opportunities to develop several social skills. They will learn how to work with others towards a common goal, how to collaborate and respect their peers while improving their musical skills. Meeting their band members weekly will also encourage them to have their parts ready and therefore dedicate more time to personal practice.

Being part of a rock band is simply awesome!

By attending our rock band course, your children will have the excellent opportunity to perform live with other boys and girls and together enjoy playing some of their favourite songs. Being part of a rock band is a rare privilege that children love and take great pleasure in doing.

Thanks to our exceptional Rock band course, your children can:

  • Have the incredible privilege to perform in a band format
  • Benefit the most excellent music instruction provided by highly experienced instructors
  • Learn how to play with others and develop critical music skills
  • Socialise with like-minded friends of music
  • Improve their technique and overall game in a unique and delightful setting

By enrolling your children into our Rock band course, you can be assured to offer them a unique gift and fantastic opportunity to develop several social and musical skills in an environment that has been specifically designed for them. At Kids Rock, we wish all our pupils to become highly successful and always support your child in the best manner possible.

Course details

Kids Rock invites all children from all walks of life to learn how to play and improve their skills in a wonderful environment that has been specially created for them. Whether they are absolute beginners without any prior musical knowledge, intermediate players or already advanced musicians, they are welcome to join and improve their skills with highly qualified and experienced instructors.

Parents and child looking at courses

Our Rock band courses are divided into two parts: the individual lessons taken privately and the band rehearsals attended in a group format.

Individual lessons

Each child will be attending an individual music lesson weekly in either singing, guitar, bass, drums or piano to prepare the material worked on at the band rehearsal each Friday. He or she will be studying a particular song while building his technical skills on a solid foundation. Even if our music lessons are fun and entertaining, we always maintain the highest level of education.

We are proud to work with outstanding music teachers who have a passion for teaching children and help them improve in a loving, patient and understanding manner. You can be assured that your child will never be judged or criticised negatively. On the contrary, he or she will always be ecourage and well-supported in his or her endeavour. We believe that inspiring children is key to their success and we maintain this philosophy throughout their musical journey.

The individual lessons take place weekly on a set day and time for 45 minutes.

Band rehearsal

The second session of the week will be a band rehearsal where children come together to perform the song they have been practising earlier in the week with their instructor. During these sessions, the emphasis will be on learning how to play in a group format. It will include listening to the parts played by the other members of the band, keeping a tempo, playing softer or louder depending whether it is a solo or an accompaniement and respecting the performances of the other players.

Each child is given a part that suits his currently abilities and amount of responsibility he or she can take on depending on his or her age.

The band rehearsals take place weekly on Friday afternoons.

Performances

At the end of each quarter, your child will become rock star and will have the opportunity to perform the song worked on with his band members. Playing in front of an audience is a critical aspect of music playing that is essential to develop at the early age to minimise the symptoms of stage fright in the future. Parents will be invited to attend the mini-concert and surely be proud of the performance of their little one.

Frequently asked questions

Children can start their music lessons at any age, as our instructors will use musical games with very young ones who are not mature enough to understand the concept of learning. If your child already shows an interest in music, as young as three years old, he or she is more than welcome to join our music awakening courses. We believe that being exposed to music as early as possible is a wonderful opportunity that should not be missed.

We certainly offer introductory lessons to children who are unsure of being interested in playing or uncertain of the instrument they wish to study.

There is no need to have any special talent to join Kids Rock. We believe that all children are able to learn how to play music and our role is to unleash the music abilities present in each. Of course, some children might be more gifted than others, but in music playing, talent only plays a small part versus benefiting from the advice of an expert tutor and assiduous personal practice.

Of course! We welcome both children who play for their enjoyment and those who wish to embrace a music career. By knowing your child’s intention, his or her instructor will, however, adapt her teaching style and expectations. In both cases, we will always ensure the most suitable and excellent music instruction.

Some parents worry not to be able to help their children due to not having a musical background. Be reinsured, it is fine, as his or her instructor will detail the homework to be completed in between the lessons. If you feel that you would like to support your child further, why don’t you join S&C, that is our sister music academy for adults to learn along with your little one?

It would be fantastic if you could attend your child’s music lessons as it would be an excellent way to understand his or her instructor’s expectations better and ensure that your child can practise in the right manner in between his or her music lessons. We would, however, advise against it, if you feel that your child would focus better when he or she is alone with the instructor.

You would need to purchase an instrument for your child to practise in between his or her lessons. Also, it will inspire your child tremendously and make him or her incredibly proud. If you are unsure of the most suitable instrument to acquire, we will be delighted to advise you and offer our recommendation. Having a good instrument to practise on from day one is essential for your child’s interest and enjoyment.

Yes, you will need to buy the music scores as recommended by your child’s instructor, for him or her to practise in between the lessons.

Your child surely needs to practice in between his or her lessons. There are two factors necessary to make good progress regularly: Attending excellent music lessons and practising daily. During his or her lessons, your child will benefit from the guidance of an expert instructor. Gaining precious knowledge will then allow him or her to practise effectively in between his or her lessons.

It all depends on your child’s current musical level and the speed at which he or she wants to achieve the desired goals. As a guideline, we can suggest your child start with 15 minutes daily, increasing to an hour or two when he or she gets older and more proficient. Whatever the time your child can dedicate to personal practice, we would anyway strongly recommend a daily practice for regular and good progress.

Absolutely. The instructor will give weekly a fair amount of homework accordingly to his or her age and musical level. The homework will be written down in a notebook to ensure that parents are aware of the required exercises and music pieces to be practised. The instructor will also fully detail how to practise effectively for your child to make the most of his or her personal practice sessions.

We strongly suggest all children sit the grade examinations as it brings a lot of structure into a music course, inspire children to practise with a goal in mind and offers him or her the opportunity to know his or her musical level. Getting a certificate for their achievement will also certainly make them proud and encourage them to work well to get to the next level. There is, however, no obligation.

We do not offer any home tuition. All our music courses take place at Unit 174, Gate Avenue Mall, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
