Thank you form your interest in Band Together, unfortunately, this program is sold out. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Come play with us (from home).

Are you a beginner or intermediate musician? Our virtual after-school band is for you! You’ll learn how to play woodwinds, brass or percussion during online group lessons, and perform together in a final at-home concert. No instrument? No problem! Newark area students can rent one for the length of the entire program for $15. (Look out for more information about instrument rental and pick-up once you register.)

This partnership between NJPAC and NJSO is part of M.A.N.Y. (Music Advancement for Newark Area Youth).
