OUR STUDENTS

IMG_E8566 (1).JPG

It is an extra ordinary moment in the life of a young player to be surrounded by the sounds of an orchestra for the very first time. The opportunity to sit among players of varied skill levels, provides an amazing musical experience. In most cases when playing in a group, the sum of the total is greater then the sum of the individual instruments. Playing in Ensemble is an integral part of string education. We have three Orchestral groups based upon the player's skill level. The musical and social skills acquired are invaluable life lessons that can not be developed in private lessons.

Often students discover great fun, artistic growth and self esteem when playing in a supportive, positive and focused envirenment.   

Playing in duets, trios, quartets, quintets and other chamber groups gives a deeper musical experience neccessary for the best musical growth. It requires more complex musical skills and encourages social development. The friendships made among the students often last a life time.

PRIVATE LESSONS

 

Private instruction is the foundation of our program. It provides opportunities to educate, encourage, address questions, share our legacy and give unbroken attention to the student's progress. Tailoring instruction to the individual student, based upon ability and interest, allows the opportunity to accelerate progress, resolve technical issues, direct each student's individual education and specify individual lesson plans. Often during private lessons the scope of a student's interests, passions, drive and additional talents are discovered and exdplored. This allows us to see a more accurate view of the student's totality and giftedness. 

TEACHING CHILDREN

 

There is such a wonderful opportunity to teach children a life skill. The love of music and the skill to play it well is an amazing skill that will carry on into adulthood. Young players often become adult advocates for the arts and take active participation as Board members, patrons and audience members. As parents these students usually encourage their own children to follow in  their musical life.

GROUPS
 
Connecting to one another while playing music creates an amazing sense of community and joy. Students enjoy making beautiful music together and often share what they have created in common with the larger community. The process of working as a team towards a common goal provides a great opportunity to develop social, leadership, musical and interpersonal skills.
