Two Online Group Performance Options
This summer we're starting two great new online programs. Check em out!
Mondays 6 to 7PM with Mike
Mike Ruby, instructor extraordinaire from our Vienna location, will be leading this seasons sesson of Epic Albums where students will recreate The Cranberries debut Album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? released in 1993. The album ran up the charts and is full of everything you would want to explore as a musician in the alternative rock genre.
Mike will lead band members through the ins and outs of recording along with a deep dive into this fantastic music that should be on every student's list of music to know, play and understand. No recording experience needed or special equipment required, though a microphone and interface is strongly recommended.
