To All Aspiring Musicians.....

Play in a band with us this year. We guarantee it will be an experience you will NEVER forget!

Feel the excitement getting on stage and playing your favorite songs in a band that you created.

Learn skills and tricks and when you're ready we'll turn
it up!!
No Noise Complaints from Us

In our workshops the students get to choose the songs they want to play.
They choose a name for the band and ultimately put on their own concert.
What could be a better way to build confidence and experience the excitement of playing together in their very own band!
