PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

 

SONGLAB is an exciting combination of group and individual music-making that is perfect for families with 1st-5th graders who are looking for an effective, low-pressure, and fun music education experience! 

 

Our dynamic after school program gives children access to our modern music education classrooms to learn about the keyboard, music theory, and music composition and production; and to gain experience in group music-making using digital piano, synthesizer, guitar, bass, drums, vocals, and electronic & computer-based recording & live performance tools. 

Students are grouped in small, age-appropriate "bands" so that they can enjoy the social aspects of making music with their peers each week, and children of different skill levels can participate together in all of our activities, so no matter what skill level your child is at, we will provide a fun, educational, and inspiring experience for them each week!

  • However, due to the necessity of placing children in age-appropriate groups, and the logistical challenges involved with organizing our bands, the days of the week you request are not guaranteed, and we may need to suggest enrolling them on a different day of the week in order to place them in an age-appropriate group.

  • If you are enrolling at the beginning of the school year, we will be able to confirm your day of the week by early-mid September
