There is no “I” in band
The best way to become a better player is to play with others. The ensemble class gives you opportunities to play with other people on a regular basis in a comfortable setting where folks can listen to and learn from each other.
To get the most out of the class, you'll need to be able to play your instrument at an intermediate level. For folks who have taken our core guitar programs - you'll fit right in most ensembles once you've taken Guitar 3. After that, the sky is the limit.
Many ensemble classes conclude with a public performance either in the confines of the School or at a local venue. Check out the different ensemble genres on the right of the page.
Drummers are encouraged to bring their own cymbals and snare. Vocalists are encouraged to bring their own microphone and microphone stand. Electric Guitar players are to bring a small, 10 Watt practice amp. Banjo players are encouraged to bring tuners.
