Students will learn the intricacies of music - ear training, music terminology and theory, listening to each other, feeling a strong rhythmic pulse, and practicing good teamwork. These are rewarding life-long skills.
On an individual level, students will develop proficiency in a variety of musical areas including technique, rhythm, and learning to read musical notes and symbols. Each class will have a creative component and theme.
