Brooklyn Band Academy begins February 5 with virtual private lessons!

With our primary concern being the safety of our students, we will start our program with virtual instruction during the month of February. Virtual lessons will be offered on four Saturdays: February 5, 12, 19 and 26.

The Academy will open doors for in person programming on March 5 at St. Francis de Sales School for the Deaf, 260 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11225.
Saturdays 1pm – 4pm, March 5 – June 18, 2022

Due to the delayed in person start date we will be adjusting tuition for Brooklyn Band Academy to $385 + $35 registration fee (virtual lessons through February will be free of cost).

We encourage families to fill out a financial aid application due by February 19.

The Brooklyn Band Academy brings together students who have participated in Music Partners programs throughout Brooklyn. Working with our first rate teaching artists, students will continue study of their instrument, and will explore film composing, digital music games, and go on virtual field trips to learn about different careers in music.

Students must have a minimum of one year experience on their instrument, and get to share their creative energy and team spirit each week.
