Adult Rock Band

Join a Band Today!

Adults love music too, but “adult responsibilities” seem to push music down the priority list. Finding time to just pick up the instrument is hard enough, let alone finding band mates, scheduling rehearsals, and booking gigs. In our adult rock band program we take care of all of those things, and our experienced band coaches streamline each rehearsal and teach you all of the little “pro tips” so the bands sound their best. Playing music stays on your schedule, you perform regular gigs, and have a fantastic time with like-minded adults!

Here is what a few of our Adult Rock Band members have to say about their experience:

“Adult Rock Band was a great way for me to get back into music after taking many years off. I had never played in a band before and was a little apprehensive to try, but Michigan Rock School provided the tools and encouragement I needed right from the start! If you are looking for a fun musical outlet, I can’t recommend MIRS enough!” – Jill, veterinarian/keyboardist/bassist/vocalist

“I was a little nervous to join the adult band never having been in a band before, not really knowing what to expect. That was almost four years ago and the experience has been incredible, and with unforeseen benefits. I now do a good deal of the vocals for the band; never was a singer before this. Being accountable to a group of people has significantly helped my guitar playing. It has forced me to get out of my comfort zone and really push the process. Most importantly I’ve gained some amazing friends that I get to hang with at least one night a week. I emphatically recommend the Adult Band Program! It has been so great for me.” – Steve, agriculturist/guitarist/vocalist

“Adult Band has been an incredible way for me to add music back into a busy family and work schedule. Having a very experienced instructor like Cole has been more than I expected. He really does more than coaching, and I’d even call it producing us. We have branched out to numerous Open Mic nights in town, and the shows that Michigan Rock School schedules and arranges for us are really amazing. The rock school has connections in the local community that I would not have had if I just tried to find a few other people to play with and find gigs.” – Jason, engineer/drummer

"I got into the radio business because I'm a huge music fan. But it was so frustrating that I didn't know how to play an instrument. Working with John has been a great experience. Regardless of your skill level. John sees the potential in every person to be a great player. If you are thinking about learning guitar, Michigan Rock School should be your first call"
