Ensembles

    One of the joys of learning to sing or play an instrument is sharing the experience with others. We offer coaching sessions for vocal, instrumental, theory, composition, and wellness instruction for groups of two or more players. Grab some friends and start a group or let us place you with other musicians. Scheduling arrangements will be coordinated among students and faculty through the Student Services Office.
    Tuition: $60/hour per group
