Brooklyn Music Lessons

Halyards: Round 4-February 16th @ 7:30

We love live music.

Our Halyards residency continues next Thursday, February 16th, with more great music in the heart of our fair borough featuring bands from all over the nation.  Here's what you have to look forward to:


Our own Josh Margolis will be holding down the drums for LENNY, a collective of musicians from Boston.  

Alexis and the Samurai: "Alexis & the Samurai, a 2-man trio".  From the Big Easy to the Big Apple.


Kilcool is a 3-piece Irish indie rock band with its origins in Dublin and Ballydehob, Ireland, Brooklyn and Woodstock, New York. Featuring Philip Marshall (Those Bleedin’ Tulips, Teenage Mustache, and Antinatal) on lead vocals and guitar, Reuben Maher (The Blam, First Class and Coach, Toulouse, Poka Poka, Teenage Mustache, and Antinatal) on guitar and programming, and Colm O’Leary on bass. Their debut album was recorded at Studio G in Brooklyn over a 2-year period from 2014 to 2015, and self-released in 2016. It features special guests including Martha Wainwright, Eamon O’Leary, Kevin Salem, Georgia Marshall, and Jack Petruzzelli, and has been described as Neil Young meets Velvet Underground meets Iggy Pop with some Brian Eno mixed in. Track 9, “The Engineer,” is a tribute to the late, great Kate McGarrigle.

You won't want to miss this great lineup!  See you next Thursday!

Spring '17.

What does the new year mean to you?

We're sure that for us, 2017 means growth:  Growth in the number of students (welcome, to the Club, new kids!), and growth in musical ability for our veterans (some kids who were absolute beginners when they started are preparing pieces for jazz band auditions. Woah!). Shiny new instruments, new genres, challenging new song selections, etc.  We are excited to see what the upcoming Spring 12 Week Jam will bring.

Since 2009, our community of parents, teachers, and students has been expanding throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan neighborhoods, and it's because of you: you who've been so great about spreading the word about our program, inviting friends and family to student concerts, and making the choice to make music an important part of your lives.

Thanks a million, everyone!  We couldn't do any of this without you.
