Play in a band!

Come to The Loft on a Tuesday night to meet and play with other musicians. If you already have some musical ability as a singer, guitarist, pianist, bassist, drummer, or a lead instrument of some kind, but you just don’t know how to get it together with a band, then this class is for you! For those who are ready, we provide professional musicians to back you at a Sessions event once a quarter.

$35 drop in fee or $125/month.

Here are some of the goals we have for each participant:

  • Experience a weekly, two-hour band practice
  • Play with professional equipment at Crescendo Music Loft (i.e., plug and play)
  • Bring your favorite songs to be considered as part of the repertoire
  • Learn new music to play and/or sing for others
  • Develop a body of work
  • Learn lingo
  • Learn how to communicate with people who play different instruments
  • Learn band etiquette
  • Learn rehearsal techniques used by the pros
  • Meet other musicians and develop relationships
  • Hone your own musical skills in a supportive and encouraging environment
  • Gain confidence to perform at local open mics
  • Become a professional, gigging musician

We’ve taken beginning and intermediate musicians who hadn’t ever been on stage to the point where they are now performing professionally.

Contact me at 203-584-2814 or sandy@crescendomusicloft.com to secure your spot now for the fall! Class is limited to ten participants.  $125/month or $35 to drop in. You can start this week!
