Youth Bands

For many, an important part of musicianship is learning to play with a band and performing for an audience. I’ve established some youth bands made up of my students, aged 10-17. Students learn how to do many things:


  • get along with each other in rehearsals and onstage

  • determine the best genre for the band and develop a style and sound

  • take turns running rehearsals

  • speak up and be heard

  • use body language to communicate musical messages

  • end a song

  • write a set list

  • make a bring-to-gig checklist

  • do a sound check

  • perform in front of an audience

  • gracefully receive accolades


These experiences foster a greater understanding of how to work in groups, develop social skills, and build confidence. It all ends up being huge fun for everybody. Lifelong friendships are made here. From time to time, a seat comes available.
