Rock Band School is a program created in 2002 by Alex Johnson. The RBS was designed to offer students of guitar, bass and drums a way to apply their skills in a real-world setting and to study the art of rock performance. Students are placed in bands according to their skill level and stylistic interests. Bands work with a seasoned instructor in weekly rehearsals preparing songs for performance. Rock Band School students take their talents to the stage at regular intervals to keep them working toward goals. Rock Band School is only available at the Ann Arbor Music Center.
