Group Ensembles

**denotes ensembles open to students who do not study privately at AFTA.

NEW THIS FALL!! Suzuki Violin Class for 4-5 year olds!: Suzuki certified AFTA faculty member, Lori Hammel, teaches this new class for 4-5 year olds. Parental/caregiver involvement, encouragement and support are important aspects of this method as parents/caregivers assist their young children in learning a new instrument. In this developmental process children come to thrive in an environment of loving support from caregivers and their teacher. Students begin to develop self-discipline, concentration, a determination to try difficult things, and a sense of real accomplishment rewarded by self esteem and confidence. For more information, contact us.

Cello Choir: Led by members of our cello faculty, this ensemble meets twice a month to review Suzuki selections for books 1-6. For more information, contact us.

**Harp Studio Class Series: Join other harpists in wonderful music-making. Ensemble-learning reinforces skills taught in private study, including listening, rhythm, intonation, and sight-reading abilities.
