At The Hit Music Studio we believe that music education can't be complete without a regular interaction with other musicians. In order to supply our early intermediates with a low pressure situation in which they can have a first look into the inner workings of a band we have created the Stage Access Bands.
Stage Access Bands are designed to give our intermediate students who have completed Level 2 a chance to work in a band of students of different instruments.
This experience includes:
Weekly 45-minute rehearsals guided by a Musical Director in our fully equipped band room
One performance every 90 days
Introduction to basic ensemble concepts such as song structure, songwriting, specific roles of each instrument in a band setting, playing with a click track and stage presence.
Students are eligible to join the Stage Access program after completing Level 2 of desired instrument. To be considered, the candidate’s instructor must submit a video audition of student performing audition requirements during class time which is then reviewed by band director. If selected, student must be registered in instrument lessons (private or group) at The Hit Music Studio for as long as he/she is part of the Stage Access program.
This program runs on a month to month basis and has no contract.
Stage access is charged as monthly membership of $85 per month. There are no make ups or rescheduling allowed due to student absences.
