Many students taking private instrument/voice lessons are ready to participate in an ensemble experience, or perhaps have played in a group before and are ready to “hone” their skills with other musicians. In our Rock Ensemble program, students perform out in various public venues with a group that is coached by an experienced teacher.


Students work together as a band on popular tunes and original works appropriate to the

instrumentation and skill level of participants. Ensembles also have the opportunity to

perform at many community events and locations throughout the year. 


The program is open to ALL instruments and voice ages 9 through adult. Students

need the minimum of 1 year of study on their instrument(s) to participate.

Class Date and Time: Monday or Tuesday afternoons (call for availability)

Teacher: Tom Hartnett

Tuition: $180 per quarter
