Introductory Ensembles Description

Start your musical future in an Introductory Ensemble. Music equips students with 21st century skills for lifelong success. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY…..IT’S FUN!

Our Introductory Ensembles are for kids who are brand new to music or have dabbled in church music, piano lessons, drumming, etc. Basically, if playing an instrument sounds like fun to you, sign up!
