Youth Garage Band

Every instrument has a unique role in a band. Playing together and creating a unique “band” sound is part of a process. Students will learn how to work together to create, write, rehearse and perform their own original material.

Learn about songwriting, arranging and how to turn a “jam” into a song. Song forms, creating set lists and different performance techniques will be demonstrated to bring all the hard work together for a cohesive, entertaining and rehearsed show.

Students will have an interactive experience on how to take a bands’ music to the next level and what is involved with playing gigs and then ultimately heading into the recording studio and releasing material.

Exercising musical and social skills while being challenged creatively is what the Youth Garage Band classes are all about.
