Intermediate to advanced students will learn technique exercises and theory, gain practical knowledge of the equipment used in professional performance settings and have the opportunity to perform at community events.  The Rockers began in February 2015 and to date have performed over 175 songs to over 9,000 attendees at a variety of venues and events around Salem. At the end of the 12-week program, students will perform a set of music for their family and friends at a local venue.
