Are you ready to do more than just practice scales and play in the school band? Have you always wanted to be a rock star? Kailua Music School has a revolutionary new program that will make YOU part of a band and get live gigs. Being part of a band encourages teamwork, creativity, discipline and that long lost art – stage etiquette.
Our graduates play regular gigs and shows at festivals, clubs, markets and other venues. And they often make great money. If you are between eight and fourteen years old, play an instrument reasonably well, and have three hours a week plus 40 minutes a day to devote, you could be playing live shows within three months.
Please be willing to ensure your child practices daily.
Please be willing to let the instructor be “in charge” of the band during practice sessions
Make suggestions for new music or new music styles and bring them to the group for consideration.
