Blue Bear is the original nonprofit school of rock and roll. Would-be musicians of all ages and all skill levels learn to play contemporary music, including rock, blues, jazz, hip-hop, folk, and pop.

Since its inception, Blue Bear’s highly regarded professional staff and faculty have helped more than 35,000 individuals achieve their musical goals for voice, acoustic and electric guitar, piano, bass, drums, horns, songwriting, bands, and ensembles.

The School currently serves more than 2,300 children and adults, with the belief that everyone should have equal access to the gift of playing music, regardless of their financial means, what neighborhood they live in and, in the case of young people, what school they attend. This is especially true for youth from low-income families and at-risk communities who do not otherwise have access to quality music education.
