For all ages, our training is based on embodied learning. Performers train their instruments much like athletes train. Students learn about inspiration, craft, critical thought, dedication, resilience, conceptual articulation, ensemble work, adaptability, delayed gratification and leadership. Classes are run dojo-style.
