Band Ensemble by José
Students begin a journey towards instrument mastery according to their goals, aspirations and commitment. In addition to working on pieces that showcase the instrument (Concertos, Sonatas, Partitas, and other solo pieces), most of the work will include scales, etudes, exercises, rhythm, music reading and music theory/history. Students will be able to play songs of their preference along with their repertoire assignments and will be exposed to music from different cultures, as well as Standard Repertoire (greatest hits in the last 300 years of music pedagogy).
In our studio, students are able to receive feedback and prepare for All-County, All-State, Solo and Ensemble, and/or competitions. Along with their skill learning, students will perform at two recitals per year and are highly encouraged to participate in the Sacred Music Florida Competition.
