WORKSHOPS are instrument specific small group classes. They are intimate (limited to 6 participants) and collaborative. Workshops are FREE for Stages Academy members and $25 for others.
CRASH COURSES follow a 1 hour lecture format and take place in our Performance Hall, which seats up 60 people. Topics include music theory, stage presence, equipment use and more! Crash Courses are FREE for Stages Academy members and $15 for others.
