What we do 

We place musicians young and old into full-fledged rock bands based on their age and skill level. Our bands consist of 6-8 students per group which can in
clude 3-4 guitarists, 1-2 drummers, 1 bassist, 1-3 vocalists & 1 keyboardist. Bands meet once per week for a 2-hour rehearsal at a dedicated time slot and are led by our team of highly qualified, multi-instrumentalist instructors.


Success Stories

These original bands got their start within our program. AoRM is proud to be a stepping stone for local talent. Check out our Spotify Sampler to get a taste of several genres including rock, pop, blues and country.
