Development Classes

Private Lessons + Music Theory + Performance Ensemble*
These Three are Needed to become a Competent Musician!

Musicianship and the practical experience of performing with other musicians is so vital to a musician’s development, that we encourage every student to take a musicianship class and appropriate performing ensemble. To make this affordable, students taking private lessons may take both a musicianship class and a performamce ensemble fo a discounted tuition. For very young children Musikgarten may be substituted for a musicianship class.

*Scholarship Students and “Prep’ Division Students are required to take theory and a performance ensemble.
