About The Music Path
Created by Robby Krieger (THE DOORS) and studio engineer Mitch Zelezny, The Music Path is for celebrities and entertainment industry professionals who are passionate about providing relevant music education and performance opportunities for our next generation of music makers. Our mission is to promote collaborative music creation and performances all in the spirit of Rock!
The PLAY-off program, free for Public High Schools, provides young musicians a creative space, equipment and coaches/student advisers. Coaches help facilitate band formation works with each group to prepare for an end-of semester showcase or competition (Battle of the Bands). This after-school project-based music enrichment program is available to any musician, regardless of their ability to read music or if they’ve received formal training. They choose their own bandmates, select songs to “cover”, write original songs, and manage their own rehearsals. Winning bands will represent their schools in the PLAY-off inter-school competitions for contemporary music, not unlike the well established ones for Marching Bands, Jazz Bands, Orchestras, Choirs, etc.
The Music Path is project of Glendale Arts, the non-profit management company of the Alex Theatre and community arts programs like the Open Arts & Music Festival and Taste Walk Glendale. For more information go to www.GlendaleArts.org
