Beginning students are encouraged to join a group class first to learn the fundamentals of music and basic instrument playing techniques. Everyone in the class is learning the same thing and learning with other people can be more motivating, encouraging, and FUN for everyone!
In group classes, you will learn the same things as in a beginning private lesson including: note reading, rhythm, posture and playing techniques, musical terms and symbols, and other beginning musical elements. One-on-one private time is more beneficial once you have learned these basics and need more specialized attention.
In a group class, you have the opportunity to play as an ensemble and gain additional ear training, rhythmic training, and can learn from others. Having to keep up with the class is a great way to encourage practicing at home too!
NEW Group Music Classes Begin in September! Enrollment required per class is between 4-8 students.
