PROVIDING MUSIC EDUCATION

BandWith’s free band programs, for which we do not charge tuition and instruments are provided to students free-of-cost, are located in East Garfield Park. They include our longest standing program, the Titan Band, within LEARN Charter School, and our after-school programs at Hope Jr., in the Marillac Social Center which include the All-Star Band and the newly formed Drumline.

 

TITAN BAND

The Titan Band offers quality instrumental music instruction and ensemble play to students. We believe in the importance of giving children a venue to share their talents with both their immediate community as well as the community at large. As with each of our sites, we participate in regular assemblies and celebrations.  Currently 38 students are in the Titan Band.

DRUMLINE PROGRAM

The Drumline was formed in 2019 after partnering with Hope Jr. and aided by equipment donations. The Drumline not only offers students an enriched music experience during after school hours but also provides a sense of community.  They first performed at the October Arts in the Dark Parade.  Currently the Drumline serves 15 students with the opportunity to immediately grow to up to 40.

ALL STAR BAND

The All-Star Band offers students that have graduated from the elementary school program at LEARN to continue with music lessons and band. It also provides a special space for our older, exceptional musicians from our various programs to meet, rehearse and perform together as musical peers throughout the year.

MAKE A DONATION

BandWith relies on financial donations to keep programs running.  Every dollar raised goes towards continuing music education for our students.
