Pick Up Band with School of HONK

Want to play at HONK! but don’t belong to a band? No problem: Come play with the School of HONK.

Brass players, woodwind players, drummers — whether you are a beginner or more experienced player — we’ll learn some really fun tunes with some really easy parts anyone can learn to play, by ear, right away.

Video and charts of songs are available here. (Follow the link for each song to see the charts.)
