Parents say "there's always music in the house now" because students love to practice thanks to the interaction of Group Classes!
Group Classes are the best of both worlds with students enjoying the one-on-one help & guidance of private lessons while also getting the motivation and excitement of group classes since class time is formatted so that each student still gets individual time with the teacher to work on their unique skills and challenges (just like a private lesson) but they also get time to complete challenges & work creatively as a group in tailored exercises.
Students get to know each other & practice together, learn musical concepts in an enjoyable manner, participate in fun competitive weekly drills & games, show off their new musical skills in engaging performances, use highly motivating practice tools and websites, participate live in a easy-to-navigate online video classroom, earn real prizes, progress and learn even if finding practice time outside of class is difficult
Classes may include speed drills, creative brainstorming sessions, team challenges, live Kahoots!, beat-the-clock races, composition projects, rhythm cup performances, group games & more!
One-on-one private lessons are available on a case by case basis for more dedicated or advanced students who are able to meet the requirements.
Private lesson students are expected to dedicate more time to practice between lessons and will usually have a heavier load of assignments than students in group classes. Usually, students who already have mastered the basics of their instrument and have specific goals in mind are strong candidates for private lessons.
