Building the Band

Ages: entering grades 4 through 8 in September 2024
Hours: 9:00 am-4:00 pm

More cowbell? This is your aspiring rock star’s chance to sing, write songs, choreograph moves, develop a stage presence and jam out with fellow musicians. We’ve partnered with  Jammin’ With You, a Boston-based company who offers music lessons, to teach every kind of instrument to kids of all ability levels. At the end of this one-week session, your child will perform in a heartfelt Friday concert for family and friends. There’s only one thing left to say: rock on!
