Fall 23 session of Band Lab is open for enrollment now!
Band Lab is a songwriting and class that meets once a week on Mondays or Tuesdays. We focus on teaching students how to collaborate, improvise, write, and rehearse music together in a small band context. It is designed for students that are looking for the next step in their creative musical development and who are interested in starting or playing in a band someday.
Students taking lessons in the the following areas can sign up: guitar, bass, keyboard/piano, vocal, horn, strings, songwriting, production
Band Lab sessions will run Sept 18th-Dec 11th and will be held weekly at Music Lab on Mondays and Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8pm for $37 per student per week. At the end of the semester the students in both bands will give a concert performing the original music they wrote and arranged together over the course of the fall and receive a video and audio recording of the performance.
—students will play/sing along to any recording they choose, playing their part along to the entire song
