For the rest of the day, the group will work with up to 60 students writing, rehearsing, and recording a rock anthem specifically for your school that will be performed and taught to everyone at the end of the day. Imagine your school having its very own theme song that can be sung at every assembly! k-12

Straight out of -40 degrees in Canada’s Yukon, comes the power trio Speed Control with super tight, riff heavy, harmony rock. Steeped in a jazz and classical background they have turned to their true passion – rock n’ roll. Highlights include Atlin Arts & Music Festival, Aurora Concert Series with the Sam Roberts Band, Folk on the Rocks, Panamania 2015, National Arts Centre’s Northern Scene, Suicide Prevention Concert in Iqaluit, and Canadian Music Week in Toronto. Speed Control were finalists for Best New Group on CBC Radio’s inaugural Searchlight competition for their song, “Tent City”. 2018 saw Speed Control hitting the US for several tours and amassing a total of 250 shows in Canada and the US.
In addition to shows of their original music, they have a passion for music education and have played concerts in 400 schools to upwards of 200,000 students. They’ve written and recorded 67 rock anthems with schools. Along with playing festivals, theatres, and clubs, Speed Control’s signature rock camp is in high demand, working with kids from 8 to 85 and all skill levels. Speed Control also delivers workshops and performance coaching to young bands. They are youth engagement specialists!
