Teen Open Mic

A Monthly Open Mic Just for Teens, Ages 13 - 19

What to expect: A supportive and fun atmosphere to celebrate everyone’s contributions and to welcome new performers.

Who can participate? Pretty much everyone: emerging singer songwriters, solo electric guitarists, vocalists of all kinds, spoken word artists, rappers, acoustic groups, Irish fiddlers, jazz bands, and full-fledged rock bands!

How? To guarantee a performance slot in our shows, sign up in-person during intermission of the previous month's show. If you can't attend, you may send a friend or relative to sign up for you. Email questions to Cybele Seifert.

Acoustic or electric? We love it all! Play what you are passionate about playing.

Many of our Teen Rock Ensembles regularly play this show. You will also hear performances by students who study with our wonderful Private Lessons faculty! Find out more about our Classes for Teens.

Performers should plan to stay for the entire show to support their fellow performers. Performers who need to leave early, due to a job commitment or performance in another show that evening, should communicate this to the show director.
