Register for Classes

For Fall 2017 RRHS is concentrating on recreating and interpreting two landmark rock albums. From September into early December, the Wednesday evening class will explore The Byrds’ Greatest Hits and has space for a bass player who can also contribute backing vocals. The Thursday evening group will be covering Led Zeppelin IV and is looking for a lead singer, male or female.

In addition to creating the best music possible, both sessions will focus on developing stage presence and live performance techniques and will showcase their achievements at a concert open to the public to benefit The Coffeehouse Project and Stanley Congregational Church.

All classes will be held in the choir room at Stanley Congregational Church at 94 Fairmount Ave. Chatham, NJ.

Below is a general description of Rock ‘n’ Roll High School for Adults.


Do you want to play in a rock band? This class is for folks who play a rock instrument and/or sing in rock style, want to make music in a group setting and perform in a public concert at the end of class. You can sign up for the Wednesday or Thursday class.

How it works: Music leaders select a group of songs which are prepared and arranged during the semester, culminating in a class concert. Full sound support is provided.

You do not need to read musical notation; it is not used in the course.

You do need your own instrument. Guitarists must also bring their own amplifier, cable (at least 20’) and tuner. RRHS provides a high quality sound system, sound engineer, and drum kit.

Attendance is very important for the group to progress – please contact John Fitzpatrick, before registering, if you know you will miss more than one session.
