“Come Join the Band helps students learn musical instruments by, yes, playing in a band with experienced adult mentors.”

The New York Times

“Teaches them how to rock out - not just on the stage, but in life itself.”

NY1 News

“If your child loves music, this is a dream class.”

Michelle K

“Amazing. He started off not knowing anything about drums, and where he was compared to where he is now…It’s like a lifetime of growth. It’s been really fun to watch.”

Lisa M

“When you play by yourself, you’re not attuned to other people. When you play in a band, it’s like you’re all playing one big instrument.”
