Rockstar University is an 8-week lesson program at Hubbard Music designed for kids ages 5 to 16 to use what they've learned on their musical instrument of choice in a band-type setting. Upon enrollment, students will be sorted by age and instrument into a "band". Each band will meet once a week for an hour with Hubbard Music's Rockstar University "professors" and learn how to rock together! Bands will pick a name, choose what songs they want to play together and perform everything they've learned!
Students enroll for Rockstar University during our announced enrollment periods. Announcements will take place via social media, and sometimes via radio or television commercials. The program lasts a total of 8 weeks. Each week students will meet for a one hour lesson session with their bandmates and the Rockstar Univeristy professors. The lesson day and time will be announced upon enrollment. Lesson Sessions are held at Hubbard Music's main location in Downtown Hubbard Monday through Thursday evenings. For 8 weeks, each band will learn how to be a band together! They will pick a name, pick a "sound", pick songs they want to perform, receive valuable insight from local experienced musicians and more. At the end of the 8 week program, Hubbard Music will host a "gig" for all the acts to perform what they've learned. The venue, date and time will be announced upon enrollment. It is usually the last Friday of the 8 week session.
Rockstar University is specifically designed for kids ages 5 to 16 who live in and around the Youngstown-Warren area. Ideally, students interested in enrolling play an instrument at least at a beginner's level. HOWEVER - Rockstar University is open to ANY student wishing to participate. If a student does not yet know how to play the instrument of their choice, private lessons are strongly encouraged, which Hubbard Music offers. You can find out more about private lessons here.
Rockstar University is for kids who play, or wish to play: Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocals, Keyboard/Piano, and even Horns like Saxophone, Trumpet, and Trombone. Our Rockstar Professors are well versed in these instruments...and more!
Each enrolled rock band will perform their "set" at the "gig". Hubbard Music will provide the tools necessary: a blarin' sound system, complete with engineer and sound check, Marshall stacks for guitar and bass amps, a full drum set with hardware and cymbals, a light show... and a fog machine! Performers should dress the part (style of their choice). Guitarists and Bassists will need to bring their respective instruments.
Rockstar University costs $180 to participate in the 8-week program. Included in that price is everything your student needs to rock: 8 one-hour lesson sessions with their "band" and our Rockstar University Professors and a live concert experience!
