In response to the ever dwindling opportunities on Staten Island for young musicians to play together in groups, the Dorothy Delson Kuhn Music Institute initiated an ensemble program open to the entire community. You do not have to be a JCC member or a Music Institute student to participate but you do need some experience on your instrument. Auditions are required and are held at the Bernikow JCC by appointment.
These classes provide enrichment through instruction in theory, ear training, musical forms, music history and general music appreciation. Students will be assigned to an appropriate class. Participation is highly recommended. This class is included with private lesson tuition. For those not enrolled in Music Institute private lessons, a special arrangement may be made and a fee will apply.
Do you want to learn to play Guitar in a Band ? If you like Blues, Jazz or Rock music and want to learn some cool riffs, while learning to read notes – apply at JCC right now!
