Why Group Music Lessons Work!
It's a well known fact that one of the main things that musicians struggle with is keeping rhythm - the backbone of music! It is also a known fact that playing “together” in groups helps remedy that. Learning to keep rhythm is achieved better when younger students can hear others around them and then correct their rhythm. When you're one of many holding a rhythm, it makes it easier to recognize yourself being out of rhythm. It works like a charm, every time!
When our young musicians get together, we find that they encourage one another to take on challenges, try new things, and stretch their comfort zones more. The group setting creates a natural desire to perform well and impress, so students want to put in the practice at home to do that. Students will be introduced to practice strategies to incorporate into their usual routines. In order to keep up with group-mates and be able to show-off progress, a motivation arises for practice responsibility.
Every 12 weeks on a Friday, our students will perform at our SPOTLIGHT! These are informal mini showcases that student play for each other and parents. This is a great motivational tool to encourage the students to practice at home and also to face their stage fright sooner rather than later. By bringing the students to a low-pressure atmosphere with the support of their group music friends, they get used to the feeling of being in front of others. This is such a vital character strength building exercise that will enable them to speak in front of others without fear or uncertainty. We love to see our students gain confidence in their abilities before our eyes as they learn. Not only that but its fun!
We know that working with others is an essential life skill and our groups are a
TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK
great place to allow students to build those vital teamwork skills as well as social skills in a uniquely creative and expressive space! Working together towards group goals compels participation, cooperation, and simply: teamwork. These skills naturally reinforce respect, responsibility, and care for others. So much good can come from so much fun!
Learning music with others from an early age creates versatility in young students to perform well with other musicians and in their solo acts they gain confidence. When students play together, they learn an important characteristic for any young musician: tuning-in and listening. Acquiring these skills also encourage our young students to apply this in their everyday life.
This is a balanced introduction to music essentials for the children of this age. With a varied and broad instruction, students gain a strong music foundation knowledge through our fun music games, learning tempos, dynamics in music and new songs as we introduce them to different instruments throughout the year and acquire learning teamwork skills.
