If you're a teen between the ages of 11 and 18, play an instrument and/or sing, and are looking for an opportunity to share your gift of music with an audience... then, you will LOVE Teen Open Mic Nites at Ballantyne School of Music!
We will backline for our musicians (meaning that the stage will be set... PA... drums... amps... lights... the works!). Just come prepared to plug in and play! (All music must be performed live - no recorded tracks please.) If you are a local teen band, you are welcome to sign up as a full band.
Each musician will be assigned a 10- to 20-minute time slot (registration required ----> ) and will need to come prepared with their songs rehearsed and ready...just like they do at regular adult open mics. This is not a karaoke event, so all musicians will be playing live music.
** Please perform songs with audience-friendly, clean lyrics. We will attempt to assign students to their preferred time range, as long as space is available. There is no fee to perform at our open mics. But, please, if you are assigned a time and need to cancel, send us an email to let us know so we can give that time to another performer.**
We will be restarting our TEEN Open Mic Nites in November, so be sure to watch our Facebook and Instagram pages for dates! Our schedule will be the first and third Friday of the month - so, please check your calendar, to be sure your date aligns with ours!
We can't wait to see all of our talented teens in the south Charlotte and Lancaster County area on stage at our next Teen Open Mic!
