Music Makers Premier Adult Band Ensemble Program will enhance your understanding of how a band works.  We’ll break down the songs in detail, stretch out, learn beginnings & endings, refine solos, rhythms, patterns & leads.  You’ll gain control over sound and technique, go over individual parts & combine them to create a better band sound.  Learn different ways to approach a song while gaining confidence as a player.  Play & learn from an advanced level instructor.  Each participant receives access to our student portal where you'll be able to access all class materials.

Not seeing the workshop of your dreams offered? Do you see an advertised workshop and like the rehearsal schedule and Musical Director but not the theme? Music Makers offers Semi Custom & Custom Workshops. Here's how it works: You have 3 band members (required), a theme in mind, a day and time you'd like to rehearse and a Musical Director you'd like to work with. We'll post your semi custom workshop to our website and advertise to fill the remaining slots. All 3 semi custom band members would need to complete registration. Here's what's included: 16 hours of rehearsal in a premium Music Makers studio, one of our fantastic Musical Directors, a Friday night gig at The Bitter End, full backline, tech at the show and 2 FREE tickets per person to the performance. MM takes care of everything. If you have 5 band members willing to register at the same time, it's a done deal, no further advertising for additional band members required.
Mondays 6:00-9:00
