Group lessons serve many important purposes:
Group lessons give students a peer group during their musical journey. With other musical friends to see and to grow with at each meeting, the student can begin to learn the joys of sharing music.
Participating in group lessons is a great way for students to get experience performing in front of an audience. When students begin to play regularly at a young age in front of other people, they have less anxiety and more enjoyment when they perform in their recitals or other events in the community.
Having fun with the violin becomes a goal of each class as the child learns through musical games and activities. A relaxed atmosphere enhances the learning experience.
Motivation is one of the prime benefits of group lessons. More advanced students learn to become role models as they enhance their leadership skills, perform pieces in front of the group, and play complementary parts for the songs. Younger or beginning students have the benefit of playing with musicians who are more advanced, which allows them to look to those students as role models and encourages them to practice the pieces that they hear in the group lessons.
Groups are great preparation for ensemble work. Playing in a group involves an entirely different set of skills than playing a solo. Truly satisfying ensemble playing is a rare and exciting adventure. As the children play together, they begin to follow each other, phrase with the leader, and sound like a polished group. Ensemble skills take a great deal of time to develop, but the rewards are exciting!
Group lessons are a good opportunity for the teacher to use review pieces in order to practice more advanced skills. Because students are continually reviewing, they have more time to learn the new skill, rather than remember the piece.
Attending group lessons regularly has proven extremely beneficial in the child's overall musical progress, ear training, social development, and enthusiasm for the violin.
