Year 10 - 13 Rock Bands
There are currently around 12 Rock Bands at Rangitoto College. Students are responsible for forming their own bands and organising rehearsals. They can also enrol in Year 10 - 13 Rock Mentoring Programme to get training and guidance from a professional musician. Bands will often enter the National Smokefree Rockquest - a competition for song-writers and bands who are serious about rock music and performing at an advanced level.
Year 9 Rock Band Class
This class forms part of the Year 9 Core Music Course and students are selected through an audition process prior to the start of the school year. The class is grouped into 5 or 6 Rock Bands who take part in weekly mentoring sessions with a band coach.
