Fall session classes for Plugged In start September 24

Fall session classes for Plugged In start the week of September 24. Plugged In is a nonprofit youth rock band program in Needham for young musicians (ages 6-19) of all levels and needs. More information and online registration can be found at pluggedinband.org.

Founded in 2002, Plugged In now has over 150 students from all over Massachusetts. Some of our students experience emotional and learning difficulties, such as ADD, depression, and low-self-esteem, and/or have special needs such as autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. In the loving and non-competitive atmosphere at Plugged In, all differences are transcended through a shared passion for music, the teamwork involved with using music to help others, and an atmosphere of compassion and fun.

Plugged In students can participate in weekly ensemble band classes, private lessons, songwriting workshops, summer camp, and community performances, and benefit concerts that raise money for causes and organizations chosen by the students themselves. Plugged In provides a nurturing and supportive community, giving young musicians a sense of belonging, an opportunity to express themselves and be acknowledged for their musical interests, and a chance to use their music to help others around the world.
