Instrument Group Classes
Instrument classes have a small student to teacher ratio, which makes it the perfect environment for learning. The students in their instrument class together through games, competitions, quizzes and tests learn the parts of their instrument, the notes of their instrument, proper posture, technique, music reading and songs in our fully equipped classrooms.
Group rehearsals are where everyone's individual part comes together. We focus on group cohesion, balance, as well as overall sound. During this time we prepare students for public performances by addressing on-stage recommendations for students to gain the confidence they need while performing.
Music theory is extremely important for us and for any starting musician. Music theory helps students understand and comprehend the written aspect of music and help them develop their skills in becoming better readers. In this class we emphasize the importance of properly music reading. We talk about keys, scales, chords, arpeggios, music symbols, articulations, dynamics, and everything else needed to become a master in music reading.
Private one-on-one instruction is offered by all our teachers, whether the student is struggling in class or just wants to learn at a faster pace. Private lessons offer the best way to advance in the shortest period of time. Private lessons can be scheduled on the day and time that best works for you and in some cases even in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
During public performances all the hard work finally pays off. All the hard work and effort is put to the test, and although the stage lights and crowd might cause nervousness, the students must learn to rise to the occasion and always give a stellar performance. The students can finally play, sing and interpret the mariachi songs taught in class to family and friends.
Folklorico is history through dance and the reproduction of the traditions and customs of the Mexican people. The vibrant music as well as the variety of themes and clothing of each native state and region come together to form the magic mosaic of the country. Folklorico classes teach children fundamental dance instructions like lefts and rights, forward and back, and keeping rhythm. The colorful dresses and energetic movements will have any child fall in love with Mexico's vibrant culture.
