It’s extremely rare that a woodwind player has an opportunity to interface with today’s modern music. The vast majority of repertoire written for brass and woodwind tends to be limited to jazz, classical, and marching band. HOWEVER, if you want to explore your instrument within the setting of a contemporary rock or pop group, our Band Chops Plus program is for you!

  • Explore some of the basic improvising concepts you learn in private lessons, in an organic band setting
  • Meet fellow musicians exploring the same type of music, in a similar age range
  • Perform live with the bands in an intense, multi-media performance experience in our state of the art Broadcast and Performance Centre
