Buckeye Band

The Buckeye Band has been teaching students of all ages and walks of life how to play musical instruments since 2010. The curriculum is clear and concise, with a solid grounding in the fundamentals of learning to read music, counting and the use of proper technique on the instrument you choose to play.

Our mission "is to provide music education and support services to help homeschooled students achieve their musical goals."
