The 402 Rock Academy began in 2014 in the early days of the 402 Arts Collective. The musician members of the Collective wanted to launch a new program that would offer to the community a unique music education program designed by musicians for musicians. Every week, band member students in the academy meet for rehearsals at one of our studios to learn and perfect a setlist picked by their coach. Each band is given a coach who’s job is to lead, inspire and teach all the student members to play together. Lessons learned from students who experience this program consist of more than just music. Skills learned include: teamwork, humility, patience, work ethics, leadership, and many more. Our desire is to come alongside the next generation of musicians, singers, and songwriters and help them hone their skills and abilities so they are able to collaborate with other musicians and arts in their life.
