We also offer a number of innovative Rock History music courses!

Students gain valuable musical experience as each Ensemble will rehearse for a total of six weeks and then perform a full concert at an Ocean City venue.  Students will receive both the audio and written music for the styles and artists/bands that the ensemble covers.
