Weekly group instruction creates an encouraging learning environment for students by providing performance experience and peer interaction. Parents are encouraged to observe (and even participate) in the classes. Parental participation improves the quality of practice at home and provides support for the child. Students are required to rent or purchase an instrument prior to the first class. Classes are geared towards establishing ensemble as well as solo performing skills. The objective of classes is to promote the student’s interest in music and the instrument through interactive and fun approaches as well as through rewarding experiences of achievements.
