MANSFIELD – Fifteen young rockers, participants in Richland Academy’s KidzRock program, will perform live at the Richland Academy, 75 N. Walnut St., at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 11. Over the course of 8 weeks, band members, ages four to seven, rotated on drums, electric guitar and keyboard to prepare to sing and play in their end-of-session concert. The concert is free and open to the public.
KidzRock is a music program developed by musician Dave Simon that teaches children as young as four how to play an instrument in the setting of a rock band. Children learn how to read color-coded standard music notation while playing on modified instruments for smaller sized hands. The program creates a unique experience by combining instruments, theory, singing and ensemble.
