WE'RE 8 YRS YOUNG!
Another beautiful year at Live!
After 2920 days, 38,682 hours of lessons, over 100 live performances, 325 broken drum sticks, 2.5 gallons of sweat and tears, and countless hours of happiness...
We are psyched to celebrate by sharing some very meaningful and special words from the people who have made all this possible: Live! students and alumni.
Live! Alumni 07-12
“My experience at Live! was extremely vital in helping me discover who I am as an artist. I took lessons for about 5 years. Within my first few months there, I was put in a band and played shows. In doing that I got to understand what it's really like to not only be a musician, but to be a performer. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from such skilled musicians. To this day, I am still friends with most of my former bandmates. Overall, I know that I would not be where I am today if it weren't for Live! and all of the amazing staff there.”

“I took lessons at Live! for three years, 2008-2011. Alex, one of my best friends still to this day, began taking lessons there and playing in bands before I even knew about it. I went to his first show, and I signed up immediately after. No other place in Miami provided students with this unique outlook on music education. I learned how to be in a band and all it entails: professionalism, collaboration between artists, the ability to pick up a song. Also the indescribable feeling of getting together with like-minded people who all share one passion, and working together in order to achieve a goal. At my current school, we are required to do a similar thing. We get paired up by age and skill level and play in an ensemble. My teachers at Live! taught me everything I know about music, most importantly the ability to collaborate.”
