Service Description

Band classes meet for an hour and a half once a week, for eight weeks (skipping Thanksgiving week). We’ll go over the structure of the songs, provide you with resources to learn each part, then teach you how to put it all together with your fellow bandmates. At the end of eight weeks, you'll know how to play 3-4 songs with your cover band and perform them live on stage. The learning environment is highly inclusive, supportive, and empowering; think of us as a support group for female and non-binary musicians. ✨MUST BE AVAILABLE to perform at an in-person showcase in Austin, TX on Sunday, December 10th, 2023 ✨ Available spots: 🎤 Lead vocals 🎤 Backup vocals 🎸 Lead guitar 🎸 Rhythm guitar 🎸 Bass 🎹 Keyboard About the Instructor: Geena Spigarelli is a bassist and music teacher born and raised in Austin, Texas. Her musical career has spanned nearly 20 years, with opportunities to perform, tour and record alongside countless national and international artists including Hayes Carll, Sweet Spirit, A Giant Dog, Jack Ingram, Bruce Robison, Emma Elizabeth (Germany), S.L Houser and many more. As an educator, Geena has almost 10 years of experience teaching privately, coaching young bands, and developing music camps and classes for various schools and nonprofits. Although she initially fell in love with the bass guitar and the different roles it plays in a band setting, teaching other instruments such as guitar, ukulele, and keyboard has truly broadened Geena’s view of music as a whole. She believes that a band works as one to create a cohesive sound, and being open to experimenting and learning with different tools can create some of the most interesting and creative musical pieces. In 2023 Geena won the Austin Music Award for “Best Bassist.” She still calls Austin her home and continues to teach as well as perform live, tour, and record with various artists. Geena is very excited to begin her journey at Femme Rock and can’t wait to hear all of the great music we’ll create together. Payment: Payment of $395 is due in full on the day you sign up. Payment is accepted via credit card, debit card, PayPal, or Affirm. If you need an installment plan, please pay via Affirm or PayPal "Pay in 4" at checkout, which will break your payment into 4 installments.

Upcoming Sessions

Cancellation Policy

(All Classes) If you cancel your Femme Rock enrollment (includes group instrument classes, band classes, Bring Your Own Band, and long-term bookings of private lessons) at least two weeks before the start of your first class, we will issue you a class credit to use on a different Femme Rock class or workshop of the same value. If you cancel on or after that date, there is no refund. We encourage students to find someone to "sub-in" and cover your spot for you. Additionally, Femme Rock has the right to cancel group or band classes if not enough students sign up. Band classes require a minimum of 4 participants, and group instrument classes require a minimum of 3 participants. If your class is canceled before the session, we will issue you a class credit to use on a different Femme Rock class or workshop of the same value. RESCHEDULING / NO-SHOW POLICY: (Band Classes & BYOB) - If you cannot show up to class, you will have to give your bandmates a 7 day notice. - If you are sick, please let us know 3 hours before class. - Bands are allowed 1 free reschedule, any others past that will be charged $50 an hour (split between your bandmates). - If you do not show up for your first 3 classes, you will be replaced with a “fill in” with no refund or class credit. **These policies aren’t meant to scare anybody but instead, to help establish respect and accountability within your band. (Private Lessons) All lessons within a private lesson 6- or 12-pack must be completed within the originally set timeframe and end date (lessons are scheduled for either every week or every other week). We understand that unexpected life events occur, and allow up to two lesson reschedules during the private lesson pack timeframe.
