Item Description

Get a full season's tuition to an amazing band program! Plugged In’s ensemble band class is offered two times each year, once in the spring and again in the fall.  Each class has 4-6 students and one teacher and is comprised of drums, guitar, bass, vocals and may also include keyboards and horns.  Students learn to play their individual instruments, develop a set list, perform in front of all sizes of audiences, and to work as a group, all with guidance from our Berklee trained teaching staff.  Band sets can include original material and/or cover songs chosen by the students.  Students are grouped based on age, skill level, musical interest, personality and availability. Classes meet once per week for 1.5 hours and are offered 7 days a week.  Each band spends the 14 week session developing their sets and their skills all in preparation for the benefit concert at the end of the session where every band performs in a 3-day showcase of talent!

About Plugged In Band:

Plugged In is based in Needham, MA. Its dual focus is to give young people a venue through which they can channel their creativity, learn to work in a group, and improve their music skills while learning about the value and importance of social activism. In addition to the Plugged In benefit concert series, you’ll see Plugged In performing at Needham Business Association functions, the Needham Fourth of July Parade, the Pollard Middle School, and many other local events.

We’re musicians and teachers.

The teaching and learning process is a core value of Plugged in and it transcends everything we do. Through low teacher-to-student ratios, each student gets a great deal of individual attention. In addition, students teach and learn from each other – both in their own bands and from one band to another. We also teach each other about charitable organizations that need our help. We learn about the great work that others are doing around the block and around the world and try to figure out ways to help.

We’re making a place for everyone.

So many young people have no outlet for their enthusiasm and creative energy. Plugged In bands provide nurturing and support in an environment built on mutual respect and understanding. Our success is measured by how we do well, not how well we do. No matter what your musical interest or skill level, Plugged In has a place for you.
