Intro to Ensembles

This intensive workshop is for anyone who is new to playing in a band situation, where each member of the group has a different job to do.  Whether you’ve only ever played by yourself or in groups like song circles where everyone is doing a similar thing at the same time, this workshop is for you. Open to all instruments, including voice.

Topics will include:

  • Effective listening
  • Teamwork
  • Common band terms
  • Reading charts
  • Memory aids & tricks
  • Good work habits
  • Communication
  • Rehearsals
  • Coping with mistakes
  • (Very) basic music theory

There will be plenty of exercises to illustrate these concepts and help everyone feel more comfortable before taking that first step into the wonderland that is building music as a team.
