Motown Band (All ages)

Rediscover the classic sounds of the Motown bands. Learn and perform great soul, R&B, and funk hits from the 60's and 70's. The group can consist of horns, vocals, keyboard, guitar, bass, and drums. The final class of each semester consists of a warm-up rehearsal and performance.

For the fall 2019 semester, the ensemble is planning a holiday-themed concert on Friday evening, December 13.

The group will be working on both classic and deeper cuts from the Motown library of holiday music. The ensemble is looking for additional members (teens/adults): a female singer, keyboard/organ player, and horn players (alto sax, tenor sax, trombone). Note that the horn players must be able to learn by ear or transcribe parts from a recording.

Tuition per semester: $435 (15 one-hour classes), 10% discount for WCMS private lesson students.
