Bands and Ensembles

There is no feeling quite like playing music with a group. Whether it’s you and an instructor playing through a song or an entire symphony orchestra, playing musical instruments with a group is a fun and unique experience that brings people together!

We are excited to be able to offer group music lessons and opportunities for lots of different types of ensembles, available to both private lesson students and non-students without an audition. Bands, ensembles, adult student jam sessions, open mics, and more will all be found here. There is no better way to put your lesson skills into practice and boost your confidence with an instrument than playing with a group!

We are proud to bring the first group piano classes to the Hagerstown, MD area! This is a course aimed at beginner to intermediate skill level, or for someone who would like to try to see what piano lessons are like. Open to ages 18 and under. Classes are 50 minutes once per week at a set time, with class sizes of 3-5 people. Learn basic skills and music fundamentals in an entertaining setting with skilled, experienced instructors.


At Sloan School of Music, performance is one of our biggest areas of focus when it comes to the individual and group classes we offer. If you have the itch to play with others, join one of our bands and enjoy weekly band practices led by our experienced instructors.

Bands are for all ages and students are paired with like minded musicians who are at similar levels of experience for a 60 minute rehearsal each week.

Our instructors create a fun program that explores many genres to create a list of songs you and your bandmates will work on assembling and performing. Once performance ready, we will get the bands booked in our store and in the community at different venues and events to provide real performance opportunities outside of our facilities.

Currently we have four bands actively practicing weekly, one of which is our highly anticipated adult rock bands. See what all of the hype is about and elevate your sound today.

String Ensembles
 Our string ensembles are a great way for intermediate to advanced players to sharpen their skills and collaborate with other orchestral players.
