Music Programs

Jam Club – We encourage our students to join one of our jam clubs to learn how to play in a group. Jam club students rehearse once a week and perform at a local venue at the end of the session.

Ultimate Recording class – will follow the process of recording a full song from tracking to mixing, and will finish with a completed track for the students to take home.

Composing/Songwriting – will cover all aspects of songwriting from chord progressions and melody to lyric creation and arrangements. Students will take home a copy of the recording of the song.

Basic Improv Techniques class – will teach the basics of improvisation and musical interaction in a live band setting.

Wind Ensemble – welcomes students of varying playing abilities. The ensemble’s repertoire includes works by a wide variety of composers.

A Cappella Group – this co-ed a cappella group will rehearse and perform a wide variety of songs, while learning the fundamentals of harmony. This class provides students with the opportunity to practice and improve their voice in a warm and encouraging atmosphere

Glee Club – is an advanced vocal group that will perform pop songs and musical theater featuring solos and tight vocal harmonies, and may incorporate some choreography.
