Lessons - Group Sessions

There’s nothing quite like the experience of playing and performing in a band. Our group classes create a collaborative and team building environment where students will have the opportunity to learn, write, record, and perform.

Open to all students, group classes are organized by age, experience, and genre. If you love to jam, want to try out a new instrument, or want to gain experience playing in a band, group sessions are a great fit for you!

Stages students have access to multiple in-house performance and recording opportunities. We host intimate shows for family and friends in our performance theatre and large concerts on our outdoor stage. Rehearsal rooms are equipped with HD cameras for capturing practice, and computers for real-time multi-track recording. Are you ready to jam? Join a group session today!
