Holiday Rock School

Big Music offers a choice of two holiday programs for kids, depending on their age and musical experience. The emphasis of both programs is fun and participation in playing and performing music with others. Both programs run for 4 days (Tuesday-Friday) culminating in a performance for family and friends on Friday afternoon.


The Ultimate Rock Experience is our “entry level” program designed for kids who have less than 2 years playing experience or are keen to try new instruments. Most URE participants are typically around 7-11 years old.

Working in small groups lead by professional musicians, URE kids learn to play 5 instruments each day – guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and vocals. It’s a great way for kids to discover an instrument they love. At the end of the week they’ll perform as an awesome Rock Orchestra in front of family and friends who never fail to be blown away by the incredible progress achieved.


The Band Program is for kids who have been playing guitar, bass, drums, keys or singing for at least a year or 2. Most Band Program participants are 10+ years of age. A short audition may be required for first timers.

Students work hands-on with their pro musician coach to prepare for a live rock show in front of family and friends at the end of the week. Along the way they’ll spend time developing their musicianship, rehearsing, songwriting, learning stagecraft and interacting with other young musicians. It’s the coolest and most authentic rock star experience any kid could have!
