Group Music Lessons

Music Collection offers various group lessons throughout the year.   This includes several different ensembles designed to inspire and develop students skills further by providing them with the opportunity to rehearsal and perform in various groups.  All of our groups are informal and fun, yet students learn new songs, improvisation and various other techniques.  Each group may also perform throughout the year including our own Recitals. Rehearsals for each group are once a week.
