Due to COVID-19 Spy Hop has made the difficult decision to postpone Musicology until 2021. Join our mailing list to stay up to date on all programming changes.

Be in a band!

Get the ultimate band experience in Musicology, a one-of-a-kind program that give you the opportunity to form your own group with other teen musicians. In this program you will work with you new bandmates to write, record and release an album of original songs. Perform on the air and in front of live audiences around the Salt Lake area.
