We have some exciting band program changes and many band class additions in the works for this year that we can’t wait to unveil!
First up is Winter Band Pro 1/18-3/8
Band Pro will follow a similar format as previous Workshops, in which members participate in weekly rehearsals leading up to a recording session and live performance. However, Band Pro will have a higher focus on musicianship and molding students into ‘pro players’. Because of this, Winter Band Pro will require students to have previously participated in a Band Workshop or be cleared by a band instructor.
Band Pro aims to utilize rehearsal time by spending more time honing performance skills and learning band dynamic - to achieve this, members will be expected to come to rehearsal prepared, having practiced songs in private, or during lessons. Attendance will also be mandatory, 2 absences may result in dismissal from band. By ensuring the same level of commitment from each member we can provide our highest level of instruction and a great experience for all.
Winter Band Pro Schedule
Rehearsals: Saturdays 1/18-2/29, 9:30am-11:00am
Recording: Saturday 3/7, 9:00am-11:00am
Performance: Sunday 3/8, 12:00pm
If you’re ready for the next level of Bands at VMS call 614.451.1976 or visit the front desk to get started.
For those of you who want to play in a band but are not yet ready for a pro commitment, we are happy to announce ‘Band Basics’ coming in February.
Students will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of group performance in a new membership format - more details coming soon!
Be on the lookout for these classes and much much more as we launch VMS Band Academy in the coming months.
Thank you for choosing VMS for your continued musical growth.
