As a band member in our flagship youth-centric band program you will rehearse with your peers, grow as a musician, learn to jam, write and play as a band and perform at some of Asheville's best music venues.
1 to 2 musical mentors will work with a group of 3 to 6 student band members, once per week at a 1.5 hour rehearsal.
Throughout the year Experience Music bands perform at showcases and concerts. Past performance venues include: LEAF festival, the Grey Eagle, Asheville Music Hall, Pisgah Brewery, Salvage Station.
Experience Music provides a fully stocked rehearsal space with drums, bass, guitars, mics, amps, keyboards, sound protection etc. for students to use during rehearsals.
Wondering if your student is ready for a band?
We work with beginner musicians and accomplished musicians so students can join at any point on their musical journey! The important piece is simply that most band mates are on a similar stage in their development. This said, the primary focus of the band program is not on individual technique and development but rather on learning to play, write, perform and listen as a group/band so we always encourage individual work on technique either through private "lessons" or otherwise to supplement band "rehearsals."
