TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Students at Magic Valley High School put down their books and notes, and got a hands-on education Monday when Boise Rock School came for a visit.
Rock School personnel put on a little show for students, answered questions, and taught them how to play various instruments.
“Ms. Annie, our career, college counselor, had a group of people from Boise’s Rock School," said Eliza Singh, a Magic Valley student. "They help teach teens like how to build their own rock band, lean to play different instruments”
Singh also talked about why this is important.
"Here at Magic Valley, we don’t really have a music program like over at Twin Falls and Canyon Ridge, so we don’t really get to interact with the arts as much, so it’s really cool that we were able to bring them in, and have them influence some of us into that kind of career if we so choose.”
This is the first time they have done anything like this, and teachers and students both seemed to enjoy it.
"It's really cool that they're like interacting with a lot of the teens, and showing us different ways to play the instruments, and like how a band actually works and what goes into it, and things like that. I think it's pretty cool," Singh said.
