REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE 2023 - 2024 CLASSES!
Our purpose will be to assist and support families in the musical education of the home educated children of the Upstate.
This program is for any incoming 5th -12th grade homeschooler who would love to learn or already knows how to play an instrument and wants to have fun! We will work to build a strong foundation, a solid musical education by teaching students proper technique, music theory, and performance practices.
Note: We are open to 3rd - 4th grade students if they are able to sit through the classroom time and listen to instruction.
We offer beginning band, and advanced band.
