Group Classes Fall Semester

Monday, July 22, 2019 by Paula Augustine | Studio Information

This fall the group classes will become more standardized. All Group classes are at no extra charge and part of the 16 week semester fees. Get these on your calendar and plan to attend as many as you can. 

Group classes will be in the calendar section of the website and you can sign up to attend or simply let me know and I will sign up students. It is nice for my planning to know how many students will be able to attend each group class. Of course, I would like it if students can attend the entire group class time, but if students need to arrive late or leave early that can be worked around, please let me know ahead of time. I understand everyone will not be able to make all group classes.

  • Back to Music Group class, Tuesday, August 6, 2019 1:00-3:00pm -  The first group class of each semester will focus on our music history era for the semester, students will get to know each other, play musical games, and have a snack while listening to a story about a composer. Fall semester 2019 we will be focusing on the Romantic era of music history and we will learn about Chopin in the group class. 
  • Community Sharing music with area home. October TBA(7-11), 2019 2:00pm - Since we follow the Elizabethton School Schedule we will have our fall break from regular lessons the same time, but students will have a chance to play at a local assisted living home.  These Community sharing times are a big part of the studio's focus, students learn how to give back to the community using their talents.
  • Studio Class, Tuesday, November 26, 4:00-5:30pm  - This is the week of Thanksgiving break. There are no regular lessons the week of Thanksgiving break. Studio class will focus on students playing for each other and the listeners practicing "Active Listening" as well as practicing supporting each other through helpful commenting. We will also revisit the historical time period and have group games.

Spring Semester we will also have these same three group classes. I look forward to a great year of lessons and creating a great community of families in the studio.
