    Comment:  My daughters's third time at BMF and its always a great experience. Just amazing how they mold these kids into a band that plays a song at the end. Its really helped cement her love for music. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. Wonderful program

    Subject:  Music Class Recommendation
    Comment:   I wanted to pass along a great music opportunity for 4 & 5 year-olds. The Mini-Keys program at the Brooklyn Music Factory offers semi-private classes where children make music on keyboards, mics, drum sets, etc. The director, Jason, is an awesome musician and long-time early childhood educator. He's taught my son for years and I couldn't recommend him highly enough!

    Comment:  They loved this camp when they were younger so we decided to go back this year for a week. However, they clearly aged out at 12 years of age. Maybe I should have know that but I do wish the staff had been proactive and told me that when we signed up. Only a few other kids their age were in their band. I'd like BMF to be more clear in their marketing and communication around this. If you have older kids, remember to ASK how many kids will be in their age group in relation to the other younger set. They had an OK time they did love the rock climbing.If you could change anything, what would it be?Age of child: 12Based on a Summer 2017 experience

    Comment:  Program: Age of Child: 5 Likes: He loved being in a band of 6 kids - was great for both music learning and communal bonding. He also loved and was proud of the performance at the end of each week, as he got to play a real electric guitar and bass! What would you change? Nothing! Would you send your child(ren) again? Yes Do you recommend? Highly recommend Do you have any other information to add? Great culture

    Subject:  Recommendation for drum or guitar class for 5 yr old?
    Comment:  Brooklyn Music Factory in Gowanus! Both my children take private guitar and drums there and have participated in bands where they get to learn all the band instruments (including electric guitar and keyboard), how to play in a group, collaborate on music writing, cover popular songs across genres and perform on an awesome stage. Warm, family oriented environment. Very cool. Hard to find anything this wonderful anywhere else. Kids love it. They have stuff for parents too. Drum circles are always a part of the warm up too. Great teaching model to inspire love of music from an early age.

    Comment:  Response to a request for Guitar lessons:I strongly suggest Brooklyn Music Factory! The teachers are great musicians, the teaching program really effective and students get the opportunity to perform at places like Puppets!
