After the kids leave on the second Thursday of each month, Boise Rock School opens for Adult Rock Night. It doesn't matter if you've been rocking out your whole life or you've never touched an instrument. By the end of the night, you'll know least one hit.
It works like this: the crowd is divided into groups of three to five, get matched up with a teacher, decide who plays what instrument and spend about an hour learning a song. In sessions past, songs have come from the Doobie Brothers, Adele and Bill Withers.
"Adults put up a lot of self-perceived barriers about trying new things. We just want to be like, 'Look, show up and we'll get you playing something,'" said managing director Ryan Peck.
At the end of the evening, each band will perform their song.
