Speed Control’s School Show
What makes music rock? Speed Control’s Rockology lifts the curtain to reveal the mechanics of rock music so even grade threes can listen like budding musicians.
Along with original music by Speed Control, students will rock out to Canadian and other classics. They’ll learn to recognize chords in the standard blues progression, how fuzz pedals make everything sound good, what parts make up most rock songs and what makes a power chord so irresistible.
Students will be having too much fun to notice they’re effortlessly absorbing the fundamentals of popular music.“The spirit of the band and the connection to all of our students was incredible. I have already recommended them to other Principals in our area of the city.” Roland Michener Elementary, Calgary, AB
“High energy, humorous show that kept students entertained and engaged.” Mount Boucherie Secondary, Kelowna, BC
Speed Control Rock Anthem Workshop
Every school deserves its own rock anthem! The day starts with a full performance of Speed Control’s From Rags to Rock for the whole school. For the rest of the day, the group will work with up to 60 students writing, rehearsing, and recording a rock anthem specifically for your school that will be performed and taught to everyone at the end of the day. Imagine your school having its very own theme song that can be sung at every assembly! K–12
