Participants will learn practical skills while forming a band, developing a band identity and logo, selecting and learning cover songs and performing in a concert finale!

Participants will also learn practical tools covered at each rehearsal such as stage presence, basic music theory, vocals, harmonies and understanding their instrument. The rehearsals are led by experienced teaching professionals who are currently working in Santa Fe or New Mexico bands!
