For several years now Progressive Music Center has believed in the use of new technologies and related hardware in the creation and education of music making. So when the Apple iPad hit the market we could not wait to get our hands on the device and see how it can be applied to our teaching curriculums. We are currently experimenting with the iPad and working to integrate it into our teaching rooms by allowing all of our staff to use and discover the Apps and ideas that the iPad brings to the table. (one recommendation: please add a camera!)
If you are planing to attend our upcoming summer camps, here’s a great article that will discuss some of the recording ideas we’ll present during MusicTech 09′.
In 2009 our Raleigh, NC location will move into a bigger and better space at Briar Creek (70 & TW Alexander) that will offer some very cool features and amenities for our students. We are pushing for a late March/early April opening, but we’ll have more details, a sneak peak at our floor plan and teaching room layouts and grand opening info. as we move along in our build out. The transition will be seamless and our teachers are very excited about the new space!
We are pleased to announce Rock Academy – the updated version of our popular Student Band Jam program where we place students into bands for rehearsals and performances. Rock Academy will offer everyone the opportunity to play in a band, no matter if you take lessons with Progressive or with someone else. (Shame on you for not taking your lessons with Progressive, but that’s another post:)
It’s simple to get started. Here’s the scoop:
- Introductory price is only $10.00 per rocker.
- Rehearsals are weekly for one hour
- Space is limited
- Minimum of 3 members per band are needed to schedule a rehearsal
- No Make-Ups are offered for any reason
