Join the ultimate band on Cape Cod, Summer Sounds! Founded in 2010, hundreds of budding musicians and singers have participated in this inspiring program. Students enjoy week-long sessions in rock, pop and jazz bands. Throughout the week, they develop as band members and soloists, receiving instruction from an all-star faculty.  Special events include guest speakers, one-on-one instruction, ensemble singing, and master classes with the pros. Students will dial-in their stage performance with a concert for family and friends at the end of the session.

Joe's continuing mission is to strengthen and diversify the knowledge and skill of each student by supporting their personal and cultural connections to music while also building the skills to analyze music objectively and with an open mind. In 2016, he published his first method book, The Guitarist's Palette, and is currently writing additional volumes to create a complete series. He is patient with students of all skill levels, ages, and interest. 

Growing up in a small town in Vermont, Joe Baer Magnant began playing the guitar at the age of five and learned the value of having access to music education through a thriving music department at his high school. He continued his education at Berklee College of Music and Cape Cod Community College, focusing his studies on music performance, childhood development, and music education. After several years of performing and teaching extensively on Cape Cod and in the Boston area, he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he shared the stage with some of the most legendary acts in soul music and recorded for labels across the country in the styles of R&B/soul, jazz, blues, and rock. As a dedicated instructor for almost two decades, he has taught hundreds of students, some of whom have been accepted into the most prestigious institutions in the country.
