During the current Corona Virus Crisis, Musical Chairs Studio has moved to a virtual environment.
Summer Programs are available for registration. Musical Chairs is closely monitoring progress toward loosening of social distancing. We intend to continue offering virtual opportunities for any client who prefers them. We will also offer in-person classes if and when it is deemed safe and follow state guidelines to keep all of our community healthy.
For students who wish to play as part of a group. Students need not be enrolled in private lessons with Musical Chairs, but should have a working knowledge of their instrument. Bands will be grouped based upon ability and scheduling. Groups can meet on a weekly, bi-monthly or monthly basis depending on interest. Students can register as individuals or as a group.
Students will learn essential skills that are unique to playing in a group such as the ability to play and collaborate with other musicians. Rock ensembles will also cultivate the ability to "take a solo" and improvise, how to create music by reading from a "lead sheet." Groups will also work on techniques to improve stage presence and decrease performances anxiety in a more social musical environment. When groups have enough music prepared, we will work with them to schedule performance opportunities.
