Group lessons are available on violin, flute, recorder, guitar and ukulele. Groups are recommended as an inexpensive and fun way to start learning. There are many benefits to group learning:
- It opens up other musical opportunities – in a group students can play duets and trios, they can participate in musical games and have friendly competition on scales and theoretical aspects.
- It enables increased aural awareness of ensemble, intonation and balance where students can learn from and be motivated by each other
- The social aspects-students work together, encourage each other and compete against each other. Friends made in group lessons can often remain friends for a lifetime.
After the first year, students can decide whether to keep the group together or move onto individual lessons. The length of the lesson is dependent on the number of students enrolled.
