The course focuses on building ensemble skills such as band member communication, backing, soloing, musical feel, rehearsal techniques and etiquette, tune and song structure, and basic theory needed to play in a group setting. Other fun aspects include selecting your ensemble's name and a performance opportunity at the end of the course.

We do not issue refunds or makeup lessons except for severe crisis, such as a death in the family. If an instructor cancels a lesson, you may receive a makeup lesson, future lesson credit, or a refund.
