Some of this Fall’s workshops include synthesizers, light, sound, band listening, branding, promotion, stage presence, songwriting, and the historic functionality and accentuation of their instrument to communicate. These workshops are intended to deepen students’ engagement in the artistic process, widen their view of what enriches music and the development of essential life skills: collaboration, communication and creation. 

Students are placed in bands based on instrument of choice, experience and availability. Bands decide their name, style of music and lyrics for their original song, and all the other fun elements that go into being in a band.

YEAH! strives to provide everyone with their first-choice instrument. We encourage participants to be open to possibly developing skills with their second-choice instrument.

Experienced instructors lead our young musicians to create community by favoring collaboration over competition. This allows for inclusive and transparent conversations. Everyone becomes an encouraging guide as they challenge themselves – and each other – to grow.  

SCHOLARSHIPS  – YEAH! wants to increase the number of young people participating in our programs and diversify the student population. One way we accomplish this goal is to provide scholarships to help families remove financial barriers to music education. YEAH! never turns away a student due to lack of funds. For more information, please email Maria Malafronte, Program Manager, at programs@yeahrocks.org.
