Speed Control is a powerful, animated rock trio featuring Graeme Peters, Jody Peters and Ian March. With diverse musical backgrounds, the trio uses their extensive knowledge to engage and inspire youth audiences everywhere. Super catchy, super fun, super pop! The trio has a special knack for sharing their skills with students of all ages thanks to their teaching experience. In addition to their 50-minute history of rock show, they offer 1-5 day rock camps for all skill levels and a 1-day rock anthem workshop. All workshops focus on skill building - on stage and in rehearsal - and culminate with a showcase of all participants.
