Star Power Bands
AT THE FRISCO SCHOOL OF MUSIC

 

Our Star Power Band series is our most popular series and is also our best value. You meet once a week for a private music lesson with your teacher for the individual attention you need to really learn your instrument.

Your private lesson teacher will help prepare you for all of the performance events held throughout the year.

You also attend one of the weekly hour long band sessions: Rock School Band offered for your age group. You will have a chance for solo and group performing, and might even be invited to perform at one of the local venues we book throughout the year.

You will also be able to participate in all of the school concerts, festivals and competitions that we offer.

The world needs music! Are you playing your part?

Star Power Bands are for beginners through advancing players on all instruments. Learning to play together as a team, mastering your part, putting it all together as a stage performance, learning about basic styles and concepts is covered each week.

Our teachers are professional "gigging" musicians with university training and real-world playing experience. Basic music theory concepts are also taught using examples from the songs the bands are playing.

We focus on how music is put together with intervals, patterns, chords, steady beat and basic rhythms and rhythmic notation, 12-bar form and improvisation.

Students move ahead in their skill levels at their own pace, and the teacher assigns parts appropriate for each band member. Rock 'n Roll (classic and contemporary) and familiar classics.

Band Blow Outs: Lights, Camera Action! Twice a year the Rock Band Students perform in our Performance Hall on a stage with professional equipment, lighting and sound. The Concerts feature each student as a part of the Band as well. With so many different instrumentalists represented the one-hour Concerts keep the attention of all family members. These Concerts are one of the many highlights of our School, and what keeps students coming back year after year.

Texas State Theory Test: All students at the Frisco School of Music work on theory curriculum at their level, but we realize that some students are not interested or available to devote additional time to prepare for and attend a special testing day. Sitting for the yearly Texas State Theory Test is optional, and is for students who want to earn a medal for a score of 90 and above. Interested students complete a Texas State Theory Test Registration Form and return it to our office before the deadline. There is a written and a listening section for each test level. The testing fee is $15 (billed to your materials account). The Texas State Theory Test covers basic musical knowledge at levels 1-12. Concepts include level appropriate questions regarding note names, intervals, chords, rhythms, meters, patterns and scales, key signatures, harmonic progression, vocabulary, ear-training and more. All information on the test is covered in the weekly private lessons and in the Theory Time Books. Students prepare by completing and reviewing all chapters in their level Theory Time Book, and by completing two practice tests during the semester. Students earn a ribbon for participating, and a medal for scoring 90-101.

Rising Star Music Competition: Each year the Frisco School of Music hosts the Rising Star Music Competition. The purpose of the Competition is to recognize talented young musicians, and is open Frisco area students ages 9-18 years old. Instrument Divisions include Piano, Guitar/Bass, Drums, Instrumental (violin, viola, flute,clarinet, alto sax, trumpet), and Voice, plus Multi-talent. Students enter by completing a registration form and posting their video on-line for preliminary voting by the public. Finalists perform at the Frisco School of Music on competition day and are judged by a panel of local talent agents, and celebrity judges. Think American Idol here…winners receive trophies and cash awards, and also receive a cash award for their public/private school music department. This event is amazing, and brings out the best and most talented young musicians in the community.
