The Long & McQuade Bloor New Horizons Band is a band program for mature adults who want to play a musical instrument in a friendly group environment. There are classes at three levels: classes for absolute beginners and those who want to re-connect with musical skills they haven't used in years, classes for people who have been playing for a year or two, and classes for those more experienced players who want to learn more about playing in a band while making new friends. Each class meets once a week. (learn more)

"Playing music again feels like a brain massage. It's like waking up after a long sleep." - Kathy
"After my 2nd year with the band I am still glad my husband convinced me to join with him. Who knew that the challenges of learning to play music again after 40 some years would be so much fun? " - Michele
Learning, living, laughing
You won't only be learning to play an instrument, you'll be meeting and making new friends to play with, in and out of the band room. Making music is important, but that's not all you'll do! (learn more)
