Why: Group class is a wonderful opportunity to make music with others, which is one of the best parts of being a musician! Just a few benefits of group class:

  • Builds community. It’s an opportunity to get to know other families and make life-long musical friendships!
  • Builds ensemble skills and teamwork. Being able to play as part of a group is fun, and prepares students for orchestra and chamber music later on.
  • Motivation. Seeing and playing with more advanced students can inspire your child, and seeing and playing with less advanced students lets your child be a role model.
  • Builds expressive playing. Playing in a group can be a safe environment for students who might normally be more reserved, to be bold and play with gusto!
  • Experience playing solo. Students have opportunities to play solos in a safe environment, and build confidence as a solo performer.
  • Reinforce technique, repertoire, and skills through games and group activities.
  • Learn new techniques and musical knowledge
  • Enriching for parents. You get opportunities to watch your child in action, using the skills they have worked on, and enjoy their playing. You might get new ideas to try at home!
