Band Class Scheduling

Please check all that apply.

Plugged In's goal is to match each student to a band they will enjoy and thrive in. The best factor in determining perfect band placement is a student's availability. The more day/time options we can consider while making band placements the more opportunities we have to make the perfect match. To ensure the best possible band placement students are encouraged to provide as many scheduling options as possible.

Fall 2021 Band Class Session Benefit Concert

Plugged In holds a benefit concert at the end of every session. The benefit concert acts as a recital where students perform the sets they’ve been learning for an audience. In addition to the performance the benefit concert also gives students a unique opportunity to give back to the community. Each benefit concert raises funds and awareness for a charity chosen by the students. The concert shows students they can make positive change in the lives of others by doing something they love, like playing music.

Mark your calendars now!

Fall Session Benefit Concert

January 14-16, 2022

Benefit Concert Scheduling

We do not accept concert scheduling requests.  All students must be able to perform when scheduled.

As Plugged In continues to grow so have our benefit concerts. To accommodate our growing community the concert format and scheduling policy required updating. We've done so in a way that allows us to craft a stellar show that gives our students, audience, and the charity benefiting from the concert the best possible experience. In addition to creating a better performance experience for everyone, the new policy also allows us to be more thoughtful when scheduling younger students and those with special needs. Finally the new policy will reduce the overall time students are required to be at the show, lessening the scheduling burden on families. Although, we hope you'll enjoy the performances so much you'll stay for the entire show!

Participation - More Than Music

Our community thrives on mutual support and involvement in and out of band class.  It is common for students to participate in more than one band, volunteer to help other students, support other programmatic pieces of Plugged In, etc.  There are many ways that students and families can get more involved in Plugged In, all of which bring our community closer together.

Each session many students participate in more than one band. This provides our students with the opportunity to meet additional musicians, play different types of music, and even try new instruments. Participating in additional bands also helps Plugged In create the best bands possible for all of our students. Any student can elect to be in more than one band. To keep Plugged In sustainable, students can choose to pay for their additional bands. However, to ensure all of our students have access, payment is not required. *We can not guarantee additional band placements. *Students selecting a "your choice" option will be contacted for additional information after your registration is submitted. *Students who choose to pay for their additional bands will be invoiced if placement is successful.
