Fledgling Band

2017 Ana Daliah Jr Jam CrackupWe are not offering Fledgling Band during Spring 2019 semester. If you know a young musician who wants to play with a group please email us.

You can join this band as soon as you start playing! There’s no need to wait until you’re “good enough” to start playing with other musicians–we will teach you how to work in a group!

And yes, it will be fun!

This ensemble is suitable for all beginning to advanced beginning level string students (bowed or plucked), aged 4 to 6 (or consent), even if you just started!

This class is not a replacement for lessons, and students in the class need to have a teacher.  They can study at C4A or in another teacher’s studio, but they do need to be taking lessons to participate.

Our focus will be on skills required to be a good ensemble player:

  • Rhythmic precision
  • Group tuning
  • Responding to cues (visual and aural)
  • And, most importantly, synchronizing with others.

Additionally, students will receive experience playing in front of others and learn the fine art of giving and receiving constructive criticism.

The older kids in this class may opt to stay for the first half of the Bow-Dacious String Band for no extra fee.
