Online Ensembles: Bands & Vocal Groups

Join our online ‘virtual’ Bands and Vocal groups for all levels and ages!

We’re excited to offer a variety of ensembles, bands, vocal groups and more that will continue to grow online and offline!

Step 1: Choose the Ensemble program that excites you!

Step 2: Work through the instructional videos, material and exercises each week to build your skills and performance.

Step 3: Share video / audio recordings of your performance (with our practice tracks) to build performance videos with others — or just jam it out at home!

Step 4: Hop on a chat and jam with your friends in the same ensemble program.

(Eventually) we’ll all get together and have some cooking bands and choirs in the Macedon Ranges!

Ideal For:

Those with some experience on their instrument or who are willing to have a go! Parts for each ensemble will include options for Beginner to Intermediate players and Intermediate to Advanced musicians.

This is the whole reason that you learn the language of music — to share in the joy of making music with others! We know that the online format is initially a bit limiting, but by working together on a curriculum of repertoire and skills we’ll be building the blocks for some awesome local ensembles that can get out there and perform, record and more!

Age Levels:

Our programs are meant to be accessible to Learners of all ages (including Adults!), but the content of particular ensembles may be more appealing to younger or older Learners. Check out the options for more details.
