The Clear Lake Music Lessons Band Program is a Single & Multi-Instructor 12 week program that brings students together to use their talents and expertise in a Band atmosphere. Students are grouped by Age and Level of playing. They are guided through the process of playing and performing cover songs and/or original compositions.
All this happens in a fun relaxed team oriented environment, where students are encouraged to step out of the box and discover their full musical abilities. This band experience is not a "School Band" experience. Students are standing and playing and singing on multiple styles of music. Many songs are chosen by band members with the help of the instructors. We do not focus this class only on a single genre or one style of music. We do this to help broaden students abilities and experience with other styles of music.
At the end of each 12 week period we have a "Band Day" concert. Students perform the songs they have mastered during the session in a concert setting and have the opportunity to invite their friends and family to attend.
This program is geared towards students age 10 - 16 years old. However, other ages will be considered upon request
Students are required to have about 1 years’ worth of previous instruction on their
Space for this program is very limited at this time. We encourage students interested in this program to sign up early & pre-register to ensure they have a spot.
The cost for our Multi-month Group Band Class is $252 Per Month. Discounted to $151.20 if taking lessons at our studio.
There is no pre-registration deposit for this class. Registrations are handled on a first-come first-serve basis. Parents and students interested in this class need to come to our studio office and pre-register for the next class.
There is NO charge for students to be in the "Band Day" concert. Concerts are held at other businesses that serve food and drinks. Venues we prefer are usually restaurants that also have an attached stage. There is never a cover charge for family or public to attend these events. Food and drinks purchased at the venue are not paid for by Clear Lake Music Lessons inc.

Clear Lake Music Lessons Summer Camp is an intensive one week experience Involving multiple instructors and designed to integrate each student's musical ability while playing in a band.
Songs are chosen by students and CLML camp teachers to involve students and instruments of all types. Each day will consist of four and a half to five hours of practice and learning in a group setting. At the end of our summer camp program, we encourage the students to preform a concert in front of a live audience filled with friends, family, and venue patrons for a truly rewarding experience.
Registration deadline is one week before the camp starts. Space is limited, so be sure to sign up before the deadline as the camp may already be full by then.
Tuition is $350 with a nonrefundable deposit of $100 upon enrollment to ensure your spot in camp(Additional siblings tuition are $150 with a $50 deposit, ex: Two siblings TOTAL $500 tuition TOTAL $150 deposit)
The remaining balance of $250 will be due before or upon arrival of the first day of the camp. (Remaining balance will be $350 for those with camp siblings)
There is no charge or 'cover charge' to students or anyone else wishing to attend the concert performance.
CLML Holds Recital Events Twice a Year for Students to Experience Performing in Front of an Audience.
Recitals are one of the tried and true ways for students to experience professional performance. These events are held once near the beginning of summer and the second near the end of November/beginning of December. Students are allowed to play up to 2 songs during the recital. Snacks and refreshments are provided by CLML in addition to program guides listing all students and the pieces they are preforming.
Recitals are usually held in a large auditorium with a grand piano and other equipment necessary for students playing an instrument other than piano. In most cases we have a photographer on hand to take pictures of the event and performers. Parents, friends and family members will be able to purchase prints or digital copies of their performer from the photographer.
Also, parents are more than welcome to photograph their child.
Students of all ages and levels are encouraged to preform in the recitals. However, preforming in them is not a requirement for any student taking lessons at our studio and is entirely optional.
Clear Lake Music Lessons inc. charges an entry of $15 per student to help pay for the event location and amenities.
Students taking lessons from a teacher not affiliated with CLML are allowed to enter and preform in any of our recitals. Contact us if you or your child would like to preform in our next recital, but is not currently taking lessons at our studio.
A few group photos from some of our recent recitals:
CLML Student Bands preform live concerts for both our summer camps and group band classes
Although recitals are good to help a student get a taste of performing, the more modern approach is for students to experience playing with the band in a venue to get a true professional experience.
For both our group class and summer camp, we make this reality happen. Students are instructed and helped by several professional performing teachers to learn about 2 sets of songs (10-12 Full songs).
Although we only schedule one 'Band Day' concert for students in our group
band classes, we do try and find other smaller events for students in the class
to play during the weeks leading up to the main performance. This gives some of
the students a chance to test out songs that have already been learned well
