In this rock-opera, students and teachers are taken on a journey to discover that performing and creating music is just like learning to ride a bike. Inspired by the musicians’ unique musical palette of indie-rock, jazz and chamber music, schools will learn how to create through making happy accidents and lose their training wheels with simple tools to improvise.

"Teachers and students can expect a song based show dealing with aspects of learning and facing challenges. Songs about courageous journeys, spectacular failures that lead to growth and success, and dealing with the stress and anxiety of challenges to emerge victorious."
— Jess Ciampa, Two Wheel Time Machine
