As the core of our collection of music lessons, iBand is your chance to develop musical skills and put them to use in a real-life ensemble! At the end of the semester, we’ll pick a venue in NYC or Long Island, where you and your band will put on the performance of a lifetime with your fellow students.
Don’t worry about finding band mates to fit your mold. Students are grouped by age, ability and musical style and all music is custom arranged to suit your skill level.
Each and every iBand is customized by considering age, skill level and style of interest. Rock, Jazz, pop, percussion ensemble, classical string quartet, piano trio and fusion… you name it, we have it!
