The primary course module (Years 1 and 2) will mainly be taught through group sessions. The core course module (Years 3 and 4) will be taught in a group. The teacher at her discretion may add a few individual sessions based on the requirement. Advanced course modules will mainly be taught through individual lessons.
Learning in a group gives students a sense of inclusiveness and company. It helps them see music as an activity that like-minded and similar aged children enjoy doing. A good peer group creates an excellent ambience for children to learn and to enjoy the process. It incentivizes them to work on their music with a healthy group dynamic and better sense of accomplishment. On the technical front, learning in a group has several advantages. It helps students get out of self-consciousness as they see other children work their way through the same lessons. In addition, students watch others sing and develop the art of self-correction by learning form others’ mistakes.
The course will be delivered through a judicious and carefully curated mix of:
- Lessons with Faculty
- Lessons with Adjunct Faculty/ Visiting Artists (might also include cross-instrument lessons such as percussion lessons for vocal students.)
- Lessons with Teaching Assistants (typically senior disciples of the faculty)
