We have the best band coach in the business ready to work with you! 

Ben Russell of bandcoach.ca.  Ben is a dedicated, experienced, professional band coach who works with the bands full-time from initially putting the bands together through every rehearsal to band concerts at pro music venues in Ottawa.


What is Jam Band? We put together bands of musicians with similar playing abilities or we also coach bands that are already formed, and we help you choose music, how to play together, intros, endings, stage show and have a whole lot of fun along the way!

What level of skill do you need? At least a year or more experience on your instrument is a good rule of thumb.

How often? Your band meets once per week for one hour with your band coach. Days: Jam Band runs on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Your bands time slot will be decided once the band members are selected.

How long?  Semester one Sept to Jan.  and Semester two Feb. to June. We also get bands started mid-year and pro-rate our fees.

What do I bring? You just need to bring your instrument and we provide the rehearsal space, guitar amps, sound system, drums and keyboard.
