Group Instruction

Theory

Along with private instruction students receive theory training (notation, rhythm, intervals, chords, sight-reading) during the group sessions.


Band and Orchestra

These classes are held for woodwind/brass and violin students. The course gives children an opportunity to collaborate with others while playing in ensemble and helps them to be prepared for participation in middle/high school bands and orchestras.

Introduction to Music (ages 2-3)

Children learn the basics of music in a game-type session. The program enhances child’s musicality, sense of rhythm and musical memory, includes ear and rhythmic training, and introduces the child to keyboard/piano and other instruments. By employing the best of Suzuki and traditional methods of teaching the young beginners this course prepares children for private instruction. Children get acquainted with the best selections of classical music repertoire as well as learn their favorite songs. During these lessons children have fun, learn by observation, get encouraged and motivated.
