Rock Academy™ band South Main performing at Cats Cradle in Chapel Hill, NC, March 8, 2014. Been taking lessons for a while and feeling like you are not applying what you’e learning? Then Progressive Music Center®’s Rock Academy™ program is designed for you and anyone that wants to play in a band with other musicians. We were one of the first to start the “School of Rock” format back in 1996 and have a long history of giving the best private lessons and working with our students in band settings. Progressive Music Center® staff will find other musicians that match your level and musical interest and together help you form a performing band. Each band will be assigned a professional band coach who will help you achieve your band’s goals, stay focused during rehearsals and make the best music possible. Gigs are booked around the area in different venues and we also have regular showcases on our professional in-house stages. Rock Academy™ is an affordable program designed to allow our students to apply what they are learning in their lessons while having fun, which is what music is all about. Ready to Rock? Give us a call and let’s get started! Check out the video above of Rock Academy band South Main performing at Artsplosure in downtown Raleigh in May 2013 and see more performances on our Youtube page.
