Classes

Group Beginning Instruction 

For ages 6 through 12, students participate in a one-hour weekly lesson with peers. This class is an alternative to Individual Instruction in the first year of study and prepares students with the necessary musical knowledge to enter into Individual Instruction in their second year of study. In groups of six to eight students (four for piano), students learn to play an instrument in a supportive and dynamic environment that emphasizes technique, musicianship, note-reading and ensemble playing.

All students are strongly encouraged to enroll in Musicianship (music theory and ear training, age 9 and older) or Children’s Music Workshop (ages 3-9) as an important complement to their Individual or Group Beginning Instruction.
