“Open Windows” is an enthusiastic group of new Young Rockers who are having a ball learning how to work together. They started with the Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop” and recently began work on their second song, “Happier” by Marshmello.
On the Ramones song, Harper is rockin’ the keys and is now ready to push herself to the next level by adding a left hand bass line. Zoe is holding down a solid drum beat, and is ready to begin adding some additional drum work to the basic beats she has been playing. Willow has solidified the rhythm on the guitar and Bella is fronting the band on vocals. Each has learned their parts well and, as a band have now put it all together.
They have also done rhythm work and counting as they work to tighten up their timing. One of the most important accomplishments for this band is that they are realizing that they have to listen to each other as a way of channeling their enthusiasm into the performance of the songs.
