Support The Band!

$15 provides Music Class for a student in our public schools!

Let's Make Some Noise!

Band In A Bus aims to bus the performing arts to communities in need.

We find that music plays a big part inside, and outside of the band room. On average students who participate in music related programs score higher on standardized tests and develop positive social emotional skills that can point them towards a more creative future.

By providing musical instruments, performing arts curriculum, and staffing--we hope to offer a hip, modernized band classroom experience that will bridge the performing arts gap facing youth in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region.

Band In A Bus currently provides programming for over 2000 students across 32 schools involving general music and digital media production. Next semester can be even louder--with a little help from our friends!  

Band in a Bus is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
