We create bands and put on epic shows

Let us help you create a band during our popular 8- to 10-week sessions. Bird’s experienced instructors mentor bands through every step from choosing a name to learning and arranging songs, building towards performing live in front of an audience at our epic end-of-session concerts.

We provide group supervision, musical instruction, rehearsal techniques, song-writing skills and instruction in stage presence. Learn what it takes from actual performing musicians. Plus, Bird bands have access to the equipment and supervision to record audio and create music videos in our state-of-the-art recording studio.

We serve students of all ages, including adult bands that practice during their lunch hour and in the evenings.

Your band session signup includes:

  • Weekly lesson for your band (60 or 90 minutes, available Monday-Saturday)
  • Dress rehearsal and pizza party
  • Band photo shoot (check out our alumni photos!)
  • Live concert
