SONGLAB

Learning The Language of Music Through Songwriting

For 1st - 5th grade

Learn more and pre-register for the

2021-22 session of Songlab 

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. 

Due to our low student/teacher ratio (2 teachers, maximum of 8 students per day), we can take students of different ages/skill levels on the same day, placing them in small, age/level appropriate groups so that they are not held back or in over their head. No matter what skill level your child is at, we will provide a fun, educational, and inspiring experience for them each week!

COVID RELATED CLOSURES
