Blue Bear School of Music


Blue Bear welcomes everyone, whether you just want to play music for your own personal enjoyment or you’re seriously considering music as a career.

Unites people passionate about music. Many of our Band Workshops have spun off practice bands that continue to play together long after the end of the quarter. Some have even turned into regularly gigging bands. And, of course, many friendships (and a few marriages) have begun in Blue Bear classes.

Fosters a casual and supportive atmosphere, free from the judgment, academic rigor and competition of some other schools.

Has a track record of rock. Blue Bear has been offering popular music instruction since 1971, so our programming reflects long experience and lots of student feedback (90% of our students come from personal recommendation).
