Class Description and Performances

Rock Performance is a challenging, skill-building, and social experience.  Classes meet weekly for 1 hour.  The band will choose and learn to perform a set list of modern and classic rock songs.  Writing and performing original rock songs is also encouraged. 

The band performs in TWO concerts:  MTC's Ensemble Night and at Philadelphia's premier venue World Cafe Live.  The ensemble night performance is up to four songs, and the World Café Live performance is one song.

Our rock instructors strive to develop skills, confidence performing in front of others, and musicianship.  To achieve these goals, students need to practice at home, arrive prepared for each rehearsal, keep their instruments in well-maintained condition, and exhibit mature behavior.

Admission Requirements

Students must be enrolled in private lessons to participate in Rock Performance.  Students enrolling in intermediate or Advanced Rock Performance class must be pre-certified by a MTC Instructor based on an audition or participation in a prior class term.  The school will contact you after enrollment to complete your certification or audition.


Each class is limited to a maximum of 3 guitarists, 1 bassist, 1 keyboardist, 1 lead singer, and 1 drummer.   Any band member may sing backup vocals on songs that have multiple vocal parts.

Hearing Protection Policy

Students are required to own a pair of Hearos High Fidelity earplugs and wear them at every rehearsal (available at MTC's front desk for $14.95).  If the student arrives without earplugs they will be required to purchase and use disposable earplugs. 

Attendance and Behavior

On-time attendance is expected at all rehearsals.  Students who repeatedly miss rehearsals, arrive late, do not practice, engage in unacceptable behavior towards staff, students, or guests of Music Training Center may be dismissed from the class without refund.

Lyric Policy

MTC's Lyric policy prohibits songs that contain explicit reference to violence, hate, discrimination, sexual topics, drugs, and other topics that in MTC's sole discretion are inappropriate for students.
