Beginner Ensemble

Age 9-11

New! BMS Beginner Ensemble offers young musicians the opportunity to play together, requiring only an instrument and the most basic skills. The experience of creating music together is invaluable, an important exercise in listening and cooperation, as well as preparation for more advanced ensembles that require two years of instrument study. Join us to learn and perform together!

About


Performing Ensemble Classes


Performing ensembles at Brookline Music School offer students the unique chance to work together in a social, collaborative atmosphere to sharpen their musical skills and have fun! Ensemble playing requires members to listen carefully to themselves and each other, building a strong sense of rhythm and meter, and a keen ear for intonation, articulation, and dynamics. Students of classical chamber music will be exposed to new composers, forms, and styles that will expand their musical imagination and knowledge. Jazz, pop, and rock ensembles allow endless group combinations and stylistic possibilities for instrumentalists and singers alike.

Placement in an ensemble is based off of an informal placement audition. Each group will receive a weekly coaching with one of our distinguished faculty members.
