Why is it important to play in a group?
Playing in a group provides many benefits:
Energy - the spark of others’ presence
Anti-apathy - a healthy sense of not being lazy around one’s peers
Motivation - seeing the results of hours of solo practice
Belonging - feeling a part of something larger than “me”
Fun - group dialogue, humor, games, interaction
Musicality - listening to others and awareness of blending
Reassurance - knowing that others have similar challenges with playing, memorizing, or technique
Repertoire - more exposure to diversity of music, more chances to review known pieces
Group class provides many things that compliment individual lessons. They work together to establish a well-rounded player.
And, it is seriously a lot of fun. Don't miss the next opportunity for group training!
