Why Group Lessons?
In addition to the teacher-student motions and interactions, students interact with one another with constructive feedback and friendly competition. This creates an energizing environment! On-going, positive peer pressure encourages students to practice well at home because they know they’ll be playing in front of each other. Students learn to listen to each other while playing, developing a better sense of rhythm and tempo. Ensemble playing in every class refines a student’s ability to accompany others or play in a band.
Students thrive in group learning at school, dance, sports, and band. So why not piano? Group piano is social and motivating–students love making music with friends!
