Social distancing and PPE measures will be in place and as this audition occurs indoors at the Toronto Guitar school’s Yonge and Dundas Location(116 Bond Street) a face mask must be worn upon entering the building.
Please email us to book your online audition with a Toronto Guitar School Instructor no later than Friday, March 25th at 5 PM.
All instruments (Vocals, Piano/Keys, Guitar, Bass, Drums, Ukulele, Woodwind and Brass Instruments etc.) are welcome! We have bands for every level and age from teens to adults.
We will be aiming to start up new additional bands (Rock, Metal, Pop, Indie Rock, R&B/Funk, Jazz, Indian Fusion, Folk & Country) that rehearse during the week & weekend and fill a few spots in our Rock Bands, Teen Band, Jazz Band and Funk Band that rehearse weekly.
During your audition, a Toronto Guitar School instructor will interview you about your past experience, playing ability, musical interests and hear you play. After the audition session, each participant will be put into groups to get ready for band rehearsals!
Bring your instrument to the audition so you can meet and jam with others. We will provide all the necessary amps and sound equipment you will need for the audition. A drum set, piano and/or keyboard, guitar amps and a PA will be available for those that need it. You’ll also get a chance to tour our studios and have all your questions answered.
Each group will be supervised by a Toronto Guitar School instructor who will assist with the running or organization of the rehearsals. Members get to select the pieces they want to learn and determine the stylistic and artistic direction of the group.
