Bands

We create bands and put on epic shows

During our popular 8- & 9-week sessions, Bird’s experienced instructors mentor bands through every step from choosing a name to finding and arranging songs to performing live at our epic end-of-session concerts.

For experienced bands, we provide group supervision, musical instruction, rehearsal space, song-writing classes and instruction in stage presence, running rehearsals, making demos and videos. Learn what it takes from actual performing musicians. Plus, Bird bands have access to the equipment and supervision to record in our state-of-the-art recording studio.

We primarily serve students ages 7-17, but we also have mom and dad bands that practice during their lunch hour and in the evenings.

Sign up for one of our themed sessions, choose a song and rehearse with your band. At the end of the session, your band will perform live on stage.
