Last years Musicians University sessions were a HUGE success! We're so excited to bring the program back and offer your kids the opportunity to join a real band this summer and experience what it's like to take their music to the next level. Students will collaborate with other like-minded musicians their age, while learning cover songs they enjoy, filming a music video, and performing on the big stage.
Musicians University Band Manager
Casandra is best known as the lead singer and guitarist for the national rock act, Paralandra. She got her start playing in her first band through the Musician's University program at Palen Music Center when she was 17, and hasn't slowed down a bit. The program was extremely instrumental in boosting her hobby of singing, playing guitar, and writing songs to a professional level. She is incredibly excited to come back to Musician's Univerisity, this time as a "Band Manager", to encourage and inspire kids to chase their passion, and equip them with the tools to be a successful musician.
Musicians University Instructor
Emmett McWoods III has been playing violin for the last 23 years, as well as piano for the last 17. He's played in several different bands across the country, and has performed in many college ensembles. His goal is to build and inspire his students to be well rounded in theory, sight reading, and playing by ear, as well as helping them create their own music. Emmett enjoys assisting his students in the direction they want to go, making their lessons personal and unique to their own interests while giving them the foundations they need to last a lifetime.
