Nervous about learning a new instrument? Take the pressure off with our fun group music lessons in Tarrytown and Rye! We offer rock bands that play together with the goal of performing shows, as well as group music lessons. Group classes offer several unique advantages over one-on-one lessons:
When starting lessons, the anxiety of being one-on-one with an instructor and having to perform something totally new can be deeply unpleasant for some and even interfere with their learning. Being in a group, however, takes the spotlight off you. You’ll feel the comfort of being surrounded by others who are learning something new and making mistakes, just like you are.
Another challenge with a new musical skill is maintaining the motivation to stick with it and make progress. A group class means increased accountability because you are all in it together. You’ll want to work harder to do your part in making the class valuable for everyone.
Finally, it’s just a lot of fun to make music together with others. Our group music lessons in Tarrytown are an opportunity to explore something you love with others who feel the same way. You may even build new friendships around music that lasts long after the class is over.
Rock Island Sound has group music lessons available for all ages. Book one today!
Guitar Group Classes
This is an introductory class in which students will learn the basic techniques for right and left hand, basic rhythms and chords. Students will practice their favorite songs as well as songs they create. The goal is to provide the foundation for a solid musical education with emphasis on guitar technique and performance.
Piano Group Classes
This course is designed to teach basic piano technique, music theory, and harmony. It will incorporate all aspects of music playing, listening, composing, and performing, as well as music appreciation. Students will be encouraged to write their own songs, beginning with the help of the teacher and their peers and eventually on their own.
Ultimate Recording Class
This class will teach you basic recording techniques, including interfaces, microphones, hardware/software effects, and general knowledge of sound. It will follow the process of recording a full song from tracking to mixing, and will finish with a completed track for the students to take home.
