We provide families an alternative to the traditional music lesson with a proven game-based curriculum that inspires students to play often, and with others. Our students learn to think for themselves as independent musicians while learning essential skills like reading music, developing their musical ear, songwriting, and deeper technique on their instrument.
Our music lessons are an ears-first methodology, while still providing plenty of opportunities to read notation and chord charts - which is what pop/rock/jazz musicians read!
Brooklyn Music Factory students grow confident in their creativity & ability to play with others. Our students are constantly collaborating through music - and they learn essential real world music skills.
Our students play music together regularly, and learn to connect and communicate with others through music. Through our strong community and through playing gigs, our students widen their network of supportive fellow musicians and role models.
We think everyone should be able to make and share music. Our students have the freedom to choose which songs and genres they are most passionate about, while learning the essentials of rhythm, harmony, melody, and songwriting.
"My kids love your approach - not endless repetition and drilling on scales, but jumping right into making and playing songs."
