Malone University Youth Band

Rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays from 4:00 - 5:00. Individual instruction is also available from 3:30 - 4:00 on Tuesdays. Please contact for more information.

The Malone University Youth Band offers home-school and other nontraditional students ages 10 and up access to quality instrumental music instruction in a traditional concert band setting.   Our mission is to provide students with the opportunity to develop musical skills, knowledge, and practices in a positive, creative, and academic environment while performing in an ensemble setting. The band is directed by Mrs. Lisa Aglioti, a licensed music educator. As part of the Malone University Department of Music Preparatory Program, we also work in conjunction with pre-service music teachers from Malone University Chapter 86 of the Ohio Collegiate Music Education Association (OCMEA). Visit our website below for more information. We hope your child will join us!
