Share your knowledge and inspire others.
Help us spread the love and inspire the next wave of budding musicians.
Become a Leader
We’re all about sharing our passion for music and giving back to the community. One of the most rewarding things our top students can participate in is Student Mentorship. Student Mentors are invited to perform and teach at community, charity, and fundraising events, either individually or with their band. Our students have performed all over Los Angeles and surrounding communities, and have helped younger players feel inspired and confident enough to take the stage.
Our Student Mentors benefit from the excitement of performing for live audiences, as well as the rewarding experience of sharing their knowledge and skills with other budding musicians.
We believe that arts education is an absolutely integral part of developing important life skills, and that every child should be able to experience this regardless of social or financial status. Many of the performance opportunities for Student Mentors are at events for well known charities who share our belief in the importance of arts education.
Ask about joining our mentorship program!

How Does it Work? (FAQ)
How can I become a Student Mentor?
Students and bands with at least six months of lessons and two concert performances with SoundLife under their belts are eligible to become Student Mentors.
How much time is required to participate in mentoring opportunities?
The honest answer is that it depends. We are always looking for opportunities for our Student Mentors to share their experience and pay it forward. During the summer this might mean performing at summer camps or an outdoor concert series. It may mean helping at a community center or charity. The options are limitless.
Are there jobs available for students?
As students grow in our program, we look to find them real opportunities to earn income for themselves through music. This may mean assisting band coaches in rehearsals, or during Student Showcases. For those who are interested, there is also the potential for paid gigs performing at events individually or with their bands. The opportunities for growth in the Student Mentorship program are endless, and are up to the student.
