Course Description

This private and group instruction bundle combines group and private instruction for children ages 6 to 15. Group lessons offer peer reinforcement, social interaction, ensemble experience, and group activities. Private lessons provide individual attention for technical development and interpretive and expressive insights. By combining these two approaches, you receive a comprehensive 15-week curriculum. Participate in one 30-minute private lesson and one 50-minute group lesson each week. Students are grouped according to age and level. Instructors will use the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music – ABRSM theory Method, delivering over 650000 music exams and assessments annually in 93 countries. Students learn music reading, rhythm, theory, listening skills, finger and hand development, improvisation, and composition through fun classroom activities. Children progress through varied and progressive musical repertoire from leading contemporary and traditional classical composers.

Private instruction for all skill levels
