Our band program moves your child beyond the traditional music lesson into a learning environment that fosters teamwork and builds friendships. Just like sports and other activities, practicing alone only takes you so far. Learning and playing music together is FUN and teaches vital skills such as listening, observing, cooperating and collaborating. Our performance programs will take your child’s music education to the next level and get students out of the practice room and onto the stage!
