Music Makers NY's Premier Adult Band Ensemble Program will enhance your understanding of how a band works.  We’ll break down each song in detail, stretch out, learn beginnings & endings, and 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.

This workshop is for you! Learn the ins and outs of what's going on in each song.

At the end of this workshop, there will be a performance at the iconic Bitter End!
