Do you play an instrument like guitar, voice, bass, drums, or piano and want to play with other people at your dream gig? OTOB’s band program is taught by some of the best musicians in the Toronto scene and each band is curated by age and skill level. Your child will develop skills to play with other musicians, develop songwriting skills, and best of all prepare for a live show! If you are already taking private lessons, this band program will enhance your musical education and you can even work on band songs with your private teacher.
