Research has found that learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas. “A music-rich experience for children of singing, playing, listening and moving is really bringing a very serious benefit to children as they progress into more formal learning,” says Mary Luehrisen, executive director of the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation, a not-for-profit association that promotes the benefits of making music.

Rock Band Camp Concert This Friday at 6 pm

Our Rock Band Camp Concert is going to be held this Friday at 6 pm around the clock tower in the Southbury Plaza. Raindate would be Saturday morning at 10 am. Its a free concert, so just bring a lawn chair and come relax and listen!

Summer Rock band camp will be held July 18-22

We are excited to announce that we will be starting our Rock Band Summer ensemble program at the Southbury Music Studio! Rock bands are open to singers, guitarists, bassists, drummers, keyboardists/pianists and whatever other instrument you want to rock out on! Students need to have been playing their instrument for at least 6 months. Ensembles are formed based on the student’s ability and age, and also based on scheduling preferences.

Ensemble programs are a great way to supplement a student’s weekly lesson. In addition to learning musical technique, students will work on music collaboration and team work while creating music with their peers. Students can also work on their ensemble pieces in their private lessons.

Summer Rock band camp will be held July 18-22, 2016. An intense week of rock band practice followed by a concert that Friday evening.

Student Rock Band Recital April 30th

The student rock band recital will be Saturday April 30th at 10am. At Maggie Mcflys restaurant in Middlebury.  See you there…
