A Year In A Band is a hybrid of a band management, record contract, and music education.  Students in the program sing up for a year to year commitment during which they create their own album of original songs and play shows across Southern California.

Bands are assigned a coach who facilities attends weekly rehearsals.  Our booking agents are constantly finding new opportunities for bands to play shows.  Our full time studio in Simi Valley helps the bands crank out the hits!

Students from our previous programs have gone on to be in such successful touring bands as the Bad Suns, Hunny, and The Program.
