Join a Band in Bethesda
As a musician, there’s nothing like playing as part of a band! At Bach to Rock, we strongly encourage student musicians to perform with other artists. In our band program, students can practice with peers of the same skill level, receive coaching from experienced musicians, and perform on-stage at Bach to Rock events!
By combining private lessons with band sessions, our students can build their skills more quickly. One-on-one lessons are perfect for learning musical theory and playing technique. Meanwhile, band practice gives students the chance to harness these skills, learn concepts like harmony and counterpoint, and perform in a group.
Our band program allows kids to get creative, socialize and build confidence on stage. They learn valuable skills in teamwork, leadership and communication. Class duration ranges from 30 to 60 minutes.
Rock the Stage in a Bach to Rock Band!
At Bach to Rock, we encourage all of our students to combine private lessons with our band program.
Each student is placed in a band with peers of a similar age and skill level. When signing up, two or more students can request to be part of the same band, giving friends the chance to play together. We also allow existing bands to sign up as a group and get coaching from pro musicians!
In the band program, students attend weekly jam sessions and practice songs together. Each band is encouraged to choose which songs and genres they want to play. We also encourage bands to write their own songs and perform original music!
All of our bands get the chance to perform at Bach to Rock events, like Battle of the Bands and Bachapalooza. This way, bands gain on-stage experience in front of live audiences and learn what it’s like to play local music venues. Winners at Battle of the Bands also earn a place on the Bach to Rock Wall of Fame!
Sign Up for Our Band Program!
Bach to Rock students are encouraged to combine our band program with private music lessons. Music students can sign up for a band as soon as they’ve achieved basic proficiency on their instrument!
Students can join a Bach to Rock band even if they are taking private music lessons elsewhere. We also welcome bands formed outside the school who want to get practice and coaching from expert musicians.
