23rd Apr 2018 11th Summer Youth Band Music Program
The Melbourne Municipal Band (MMB) is holding its 11th Summer Youth Band Music Program from June 18th, 2018 thru July 12th, 2018. The program is open to all students currently enrolled in 6th thru 12th grades during the 2017-2018 school year, who want to learn to play or already play a musical instrument. It will be 4 days a week (Monday thru Thursday) from 9 AM to 11 AM. There will be a jazz improvisation class 2 days a week from 11 AM to 12 PM. You must participate in the entire program to be eligible for the jazz improvisation class and fulfill the requirements listed on the registration form.

The summer music program will be held at Church on the Rock, 4028 Babcock St, Melbourne. There will be a concert on the final day of the program, July 12th at 6:00 PM at the Melbourne Civic Auditorium, 625 E Hibiscus Blvd, Melbourne. Parents are invited to bring a picnic dinner to enjoy during the concert. Participating students will be served free pizza and a drink at the conclusion of the concert.

The students attend the program free of charge. There is no cost for the lesson book for beginners. We do have instruments available on a first come first serve basis. Once all our instruments are distributed, we will pay for one month rental of the instrument for those students beginning a new instrument. There is a minimum rental period of 3 months.
