Plugged In Band educates musicians aged 12-19 in a non-competitive environment, and offers band and individual performance opportunities in support of community and charitable causes. The non-profit organization offers two 4-week sessions during the summer. Students may register for one or both.
Students will be grouped in bands based on age, skill level and preferred music genre. The program maintains a teacher to student ratio of 1:6 or less.
Each student band will write, record, and create a music video of an original song. Musicians will also participate in community engagement and learn about the music business and potential live performance opportunities.
- Band Class – Each band is comprised of drums, guitar, bass, vocals and may also include keyboard and horns. Teachers will help the class learn cover songs, develop original songs and prepare for a concert performance.
- Workshops – Students will study music theory, lyric writing, songwriting, rhythm, music video storyboarding, and more.
- Performances and Events – Students will participate in multiple public performances and events throughout the summer.
After completing a registration form online, new students should contact Plugged In Band to schedule a new student meeting. This will allow Plugged In Band to get acquainted with the student and ensure proper band placement.
