The idea of watching kids play adult-sized instruments may elicit an "awww," but when students from Boise Rock School take the stage "awww" turns into admiration.
Since 2008, BRS has not only been teaching young people to play rock instruments but also how to rock: how to work with other members of a band and how to perform on stage, along with music fundamentals and technique. BRS has expanded its classes and now offers instruction for infants and adults, as well as classes on recording, songwriting, making music videos, making concert posters and more.
As much fun as it must be to take a class, it's an equally great time watching BRS students play; and, for a suggested donation of only $5, you can see more than 50 student bands perform at the upcoming end-of-session gig on Saturday, March 30 at the Boise WaterCooler. Proceeds benefit the BRS scholarship fund.
