Jr. Rockerz - A Rock Ensemble Program for Ages 7-11 Years
The Music Studio is thrilled to be the 1st music school in Ontario to offer this exciting new program.
JR Rockerz is the acclaimed program that teaches kids how to play and write songs in the setting of a real rock band. Students can participate in JR Rockerz from day one with no previous experience. No at home practice is required and ownership of an instrument is optional.
The objective of Jr. Rockerz is to get kids up and playing music in a rock band on day one. We’re able to achieve this through easy-to-play songs written for Jr. Rockerz that allow both the complete beginner and the more experienced musician to play in the same band. This allows kids to experience the ultimate thrill of playing in a real performing band!
The band members also write their own lyrics giving them a sense accomplishment and ownership in the music they play. Performance opportunities are included as part of the Jr. Rockerz program.
Jr. Rockerz: What Students Learn:
- How to play, guitar, bass keyboard, drums.
- How to read music.
- Beginner and intermediate level musicianship.
- Song structure.
- Ensemble performance.
- How to achieve a common goal while having a rockin’ good time.
Each song in the program contains sheet music for both the complete beginner and more experienced musicians.

A complete beginner will often play a simple musical pattern that is augmented by other musicians playing more complex harmonies.
