Music Training Center – Paul Green Rock Academy Rock Programs for Youth and Adult Musicians
Music Training Center’s Rock Programs (beginner to intermediate students) and PGRA Preparatory Rock program (intermediate to advanced students) prepare aspiring young musicians to perform in a rock band and learn the skills and music needed to audition for the Paul Green Rock Academy Master Program.
Musicians enter MTC’s introductory Rock programs as young as age 8 to learn the skills of performing in a rock band through private lessons, band rehearsals, and performing essential Rock repertoire in concerts at MTC and at venues such as World Café Live in Philadelphia.
