5 Reasons WHY you have to see THE LOST LEADERS (The show is TONIGHT! Have you gotten your tickets yet?) 1) Learn what it’s like to work with some of the world’s most famous artists! 2) How to combine a Touring Musician’s Lifestyle with raising kids in Brownstone Brooklyn! 3) How does one maintain a local presence AND tour the world at the same time! 4) What are the real constraints of working at the highest level of Musicianship? 5) Ask Byron what Bono is like in person!

“It was really to get more involved with instruments. To actually learn to play rhythms and tunes, rather than just learning to sing a song or follow along, which seemed to be what most of the other programs were doing. They’re now interacting with a real drum set and piano, and playing a song with each other which I thought was really unique.” – Mary, a MiniKeys Mom

Check out BMF Touring Band Lavender Lake at the Park Slope Halloween Parade last night. They sounded AWESOME, and were channeling some Eddie Vedder for sure. Look out for their first original song - to be recorded this week! (Unfortunately, band member Oliver had to miss the show. We are looking forward to hearing the whole band soon!)

My daughter takes private piano lessons and we love that in addition to learning all of the things you d expect from a piano lesson, she s also learning how to improvise, how to play with other musicians and how to write her own songs. All of this and she s only 6! I can t wait to see where she ll be in a few yea Happy BMF Mom We love helping kids find their creative voice through songwriting and playing music with others! Thank you for sharing thoughts like these with us.

“Being in a band is 10% performing, [which can be scary], but the truly fun part is the learning part, which keeps my brain active and exercises that same part that’s active when you play sudoku or chess.” Curious? Join us THIS Wednesday from 7-9pm for our first ever Adult Band Open House. Hear one of our adult bands in action, see what goes on in a band rehearsal, even sit in with a band and try it out.
