50 minute Online Weekly Classes
Students love Ktunes Group Classes because of the interaction!
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! All lessons/classes and events are completely online. A high speed internet connection with an upload & download speed of at least 1.2 megabits per second (test for free at: speedtest.net or http://bit.ly/1K5iM0D) is required for quality lessons. Students may communicate with the teacher during the week outside of their scheduled class thru the practice app. Tuition is: $100/first student student/month $50 each add’l student/month Opportunities for recitals and other music events occur every year (usually there will be a Christmas recital in December, an End-of-Year recital in May, and the NFMC Gold Cup Festival in March) Final decision on the repertoire to be studied rests with the teacher. Generally, instrumental students will follow pieces in a method series so as to ensure a complete musical education is attained with no learning gaps. As students advance they may begin to move out of method books & the pieces will principally be standard repertoire of the particular instrument. Vocal students will focus on either Catholic hymns & chants or folk music. As a general rule, TV, movie, & show tunes, & Disney music will not be taught for various reasons including copyright & licensing concerns, as well as the unpedagogical soundness for many students
