Rock 'n' Roll Ambassadors

Advanced Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keys & Vocals

The Royal Rockers (Royals) Performance Group is an audition-only, skill and experience-based program for advanced students ages 14-20. Students of the Royals performance group will have a multitude of opportunities to perform at community and private events/parties (which could average 1-2 shows per month, although some months may have more performances while others may have less), in addition to their performance showcases for family and friends. This program is designed to give students the experience of a real working band and further excel their confidence and passion for music.

The Royals performance group is an on-going, year-long program and students must be able to commit for the 12 months. Additional audition opportunities may became available throughout the year. Students in the Royals performance group will meet for weekly rehearsals Monday nights from 7-9pm. There are no tuition costs for students who are part of the Royals if they are also enrolled in either the Rockers or Legends of Rock program performance groups during the same session. For those students over 18 who can only participate in the Royals group, tuition pricing is $159 per month (in this case no other discounts apply). 

Students interested in the Royals performance group must audition. Students may audition for vocals, guitar, drums, keyboards or bass. A limited number of students will be selected based on knowledge and experience on their chosen instrument, as well as a positive attitude and enthusiasm for being part of this select group. As a Royal, you serve as ambassadors for RiverCity Rock Star Academy and there is an expectation that you represent the program in the most personable and professional manner possible.

Once selected for this program, students will learn a vast catalog of material and will regularly perform at special events throughout the greater Salem area. Students will be expected to maintain a working knowledge of their songs and attend shows as requested by the Music Director.
