BAND PROGRAM

Winter 2018

Bands are formed and prepare four to five songs to perform at two live shows and record in a professional studio,

all with the help and guidance of an experienced professional musician.

 

Band members are matched by request, by our recommendation, or to accomodate scheduling.

 

Each band will have ten weekly 90 minute rehearsals, followed by a week of shows and recording.

Each adult band has two hours in the studio, and then tracks are mixed and made available for download from our website.

This gives students valuable insight into the recording process and leaves them with a snapshot of what they accomplished.

Each Band Program recording session takes place at a different Chicagoland studio.
