Ensemble Classes

There is no “I” in band.

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.

As we continue to conduct classes online please be advised that due to latency issues, we are not playing together as such. Class time is spent predominantly learning songs and parts. In addition, many teachers are providing supplemental materials and practice tracks. Individual students have the opportunity to lead a song during class if they so desire.

We continue to investigate recent developments in technology which allow smaller groups the ability to play together and will update the community when we have news. Of course, nothing takes the place of live musical interaction and we look forward to assembling the band together in the same room in the not too distant future.
