The benefits of group music instruction
Learning to play an instrument is learning to become a musician. A good musician knows how to read notes and rhythms independently and can maintain his own part in an ensemble.
During group music lessons, students learn strong musicianship skills through movement, singing, games, and writing activities.
In a group setting, students play in what can be referred to as a " band". Many young musicians taking only private instruction lack the experience necessary to play with other musicians.
In group music lessons, everyone plays in an ensemble, thus building the skills needed for strong solo playing as well an ensemble experience.
Beginning Musicians often suffer from performance anxiety. In group music lessons, students play for one another frequently in a safe, supported environment, thus reducing the cause of anxiety in advanced musicians.
Group lessons are perfect for young beginners.
