About Us

Building connections to the arts, one music class at a time!

Our Story

Band in a Bus is a scrappy network of music teachers, musicians and volunteers making music class possible for students across the Greater Cincinnati region. The band was founded in 2019 as a response to declining access to essential performing arts programming facing students in our public schools. 

 

From jam sessions on Home Depot buckets, rock band programs featuring guitars, keyboards and kazoos, or cracking the codes to the latest music making software--every day the band proves that you can build profound & sustainable performing arts experiences for under resourced students with minimal gear and a positive attitude. 

To date, Band in a Bus has provided music & performing arts programs to 89 schools and 36 youth organizations representing over 13,000 students in need since our founding in 2019. That's a lot of kazoos!
