Rock 'N' Broadway

This program is primarily for singers of all ages but anyone interested can participate! Rock ‘N’ Broadway goes hand in hand with private lessons and we combine students vocal skills with their love of musical theatre and performing. Singing, acting and dance are all combined to put off an awesome theatrical production focusing on contemporary musical theatre! This is a 20 hour, 8 week program with rehearsals starting in January. Shows we have covered in the past are Mama Mia, We Will Rock You, Rock of Ages, The Wiz, Hairspray, American Idiot, The Lion King, Seussical, and Shrek just to name a few! Our show takes place in the spring!

To register for this program or for more info please call or email the school!

Rockband Showcase

City Performance Academy’s “Rock Band Showcase” is one of the most popular performance programs for kids in the city and happens twice a year! Upon registration, students are placed in bands based on age and ability*. They work for 4 weeks in their private lessons on music chosen for the show and are then coached for 4 weeks in a band setting to prepare for the ultimate rock show! This program is broken up into three different levels based on students ability and experience. The specific program each student plays in is determined by their teacher. The levels are as follows:

Rock Orchestra

This program is designed for the beginner student who has no prior experience performing in a band. Students have private instruction as well as group coaching.

Rock Band

For graduates of Rock Orchestra. With fewer members, bands take on two songs for performance in a rock show.

Rock All-Stars

This is your chance to become the rock-star you’ve always wanted to be. Tailored to the advanced student who already has performance chops.


*Please note: In order to secure a space in this program we must receive your completed registration form as well as payment. If a student misses two rehearsals they will not be permitted to perform and fees are non-refundable.
