Rock Bands / Group Classes


All of us at Mode Music Studios are committed to keeping a safe, stable learning environment for our students of all ages. We offer online lessons in this temporary time and encourage our students to take advantage of our resources available. Sign up for lessons below!

Rock Bands / Group Classes

We are finally offering our rock bands year round. This is a perfect outlet for drummers, bassists, guitarists, keyboardists and singers that are ready for that next step. Please feel free to email or speak to a teacher about which camp is best for your child.

ALL-AGES ROCK BAND: taught by Ricky Claudon

Ages 6 to 11 yrs | $200 ($150 Mode student cost) 4-6:00pm Saturdays

Our bands will practice four Saturdays of the month with a performance at The Skylark at the last Sunday All-Ages Open Mic at 4:00pm.

All of our Rock Bands offer opportunities for kids to play music with their peers and experiment with different instruments in the process. Some participants will sign up for different instruments on different songs, where some may find their spot on one instrument and thrive. Singing and group vocals are encouraged, but not all have to take the mic.

We pick songs as a group and make our way through as much material as the group allows. We range from current songs on the radio to the classics. The performances are free at The Skylark Cafe on Delridge under the West Seattle bridge and are always so much fun. If you can’t make it in the camps, please bring your families out to support the shows. Having fellow students and their families in the crowd makes for the best audience!

Feel free to email me or your teacher if you have any questions on which camp is right for your child.

taught by Erin Rae Murray
Saturdays 3:00-4:00


Our Vocal Basics class introduces vocal techniques for the beginner and fine-tunes those techniques for the more advanced. Erin Rae will work on breathing while improving your range, pitch while improving your tone and, depending on the size of the class, several part harmonies to encourage group vocals and ensemble participation. This is a great class to add to your current instrument or to see just how far your vocal abilities can take you in a group setting. 10 students max.


taught by Eva Walker
Sundays 3:00-4:00


Our open band practice is a chance for kids of all ages to get together and play. No pressure of a performance, just finding ways to communicate through instruments they’re either familiar with or try instruments they’ve never had the opportunity to try. Drummers and bass players may find this especially beneficial when paired with private lessons, but all instruments are encouraged for a better overall experience. 6 students max.


Taught by Heather Dickson
Saturdays 3:00-4:00


Our advanced theory and performance class gives students an opportunity to further understand music and gain confidence in their performance. Heather will tailor the day’s subject matter to whoever is in attendance. Students are encouraged to come prepared with theory questions and/or a musical piece to perform. Feel free to bring your instrument, as the group may perform for each other and give guided and constructive feedback. Any student at any skill level is welcome- theory knowledge and performance practice are beneficial at any stage.


Taught by Alex Meyers
Wednesdays 7:00-8:00


Our Intro to Ukulele class teaches basic strumming techniques and chords to beginners, and introduces more advanced techniques to those with experience. Alex will focus the lesson to accommodate whoever is in attendance, by connecting the lesson material to each student’s primary lesson goals. Students who have little to no experience with stringed instruments are encouraged to attend, as ukulele is a great instrument for introducing students to the family of stringed instruments.
