Join the band during an eight-week after-school music program at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, on the sacred ground of the 1969 Woodstock Music and Art Fair.

This drop-in program is a fantastic opportunity for young, aspiring musicians of all skill levels to immerse themselves in the world of music. Led by experienced Teaching Artists Peter Negroponte, Mark Partridge, and Mike Edison, the program provides a well-rounded musical experience by introducing participants to a diverse range of musical styles and techniques. Through group lessons and individual instruction, classes will focus on developing skills in vocals, guitar, drums, and keyboard, ensuring that participants have a chance to discover where their interests and talents lie. 

By learning to play together, these young musicians gain insight into the dynamics of group performance and the magic of creating harmonious music as a team.
