Sunshine Coast Kids Gig Bands


Learn as you play

No more waiting for years until you are good enough to read music and keep time. Play the songs you love right away. Learn all the favourite riffs, chord progressions, vocals, guitar solos and drum patterns used by famous songwriters of any era.

Family Centered

Music Matters focus is on the whole family. This is a family centered Gig Band program. We believe families love to learn to play music together. We believe children benefit the most when families are involved in their musical journey week by week.

Social Skills

Band members by nature learn how to cooperate, to wait, to take turns. Kids really benefit from the inclusive nature of Gig Bands performances and know that they support each other by individual practise preparation.

Self-motivated Practise

The next Gig motivates students. They learn quickly to plan ahead. Theylearn how to organise their own practise schedule at home in between lessons.

Join at Any Age, Any Time.

The SCKBG is for students of all ages. We have a variety of bands so you can join the right band for you at any stage in your musical journey. Are you a beginner? Great, we have a band for you. Are you an adult who has always wanted to join a band. We have you covered.

  • What is the value of SCKBG lessons?

    Sunshine Coast Kids Gig Bands classes are designed to give students enough time to have individual attention as well as learning all about rhythm, music reading, jamming and much more. Classes run for 60 minutes each and are $40 per student per class. This compares favourably to private lessons which are $35 for 30 minutes.
  • When are classes held?

    Classes are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 3.30pm and 4.30pm (60minutes each)
  • Our family has many after school commitments? What if we cannot come on that day?

    Please call me, Heather, to chat about this. We often have available private lessons for students specifically waiting to join the Kids Gig Bands. We can still have Band prep lessons until a Gig Bands spot becomes available, or until you are able to join in.
