Tampa, Fla. – The Patel Conservatory will hold a FREE Rock School Jam Session and Open House on Saturday, Dec. 9 from 10 a.m. to noon for those in grade five through adult. Rock School classes will begin Jan. 20.
Through Rock School, strangers become friends and bandmates, as they develop music, learn together and perform together on stage.
Jam Session participants will jam together and receive tips on musicianship from Rock School creator and instructor, Lee Ahlin, who began his own career by teaching guitar professionally at the age of 12. He formed a band in 1964, and has been performing in rock and folk ensembles ever since.
Those who attend a Jam Session and register for Rock School before January 1 will receive a 15 percent discount on enrollment. If students cannot attend the jam session, they can still join Rock School by auditioning on Jan. 6 or 9, 2018.
Instruments provided at the Jam Sessions will include keyboards, bass guitars and drum sets. Those playing other instruments, such as guitars, are asked to bring their own.
