What We Do

What We Will Learn

  • How to Read Music – the correct interpretation of written rhythms, notes, symbols, and words.


  • How to Make a Great Sound – making characteristic instrument sounds (tone) and blending with all of the other instruments.


  • How to Practice Effectively – nobody get better at anything unless they take steps to do so. We show you how to make your practice minutes (10-20 minutes a day) work.


  • Performance Etiquette – how to prepare and dress for performances as well as how to listen.


  • Teamwork – Music is not a solitary event. Every person has a place as wither a performer, supporter, or listener.
