Music Lessons for Potomac Students
Bach to Rock provides private and group guitar lessons. Beginning students are taught first position chords, scales and arpeggios as well as the fundamentals of music theory. Intermediate and advanced students continue to perfect these skills and are guided in the development and performance of their own original material.
Bach to Rock provides private and group piano & keyboard lessons. Students learn to read notes simultaneously in two different clefs (treble and bass) while developing their sense of polyphony (hearing more than one sound at the same time). The piano is physically easy to play, making it possible for a student to make a good musical sound or combination of notes on the piano faster than on any other instrument.
Bach to Rock provides private voice lessons and Glee Club classes. Vocal students are encouraged to sing in a variety of styles, rock and pop through classical, learning essential skills such as voice projection, the creation of a clear vocal tone and correct breathing techniques while gaining a greater understanding of melody in music. Glee Club students will explore fun vocal exercises, singing in harmony, and cool choreography while performing arrangements of popular songs.
Bach to Rock provides private and group drum & percussion lessons. Students will acquire all of the skills necessary to be a successful drummer in a band. Lessons will focus on rhythm, coordination and stick techniques as well as complex skills such as four-way coordination and polyrhythms.
