Youth Performance Ensembles
We highly encourage intermediate and advanced students to join one of our ensembles or bands. Ensembles are a perfect addition to private lessons, as they provide meaningful complement to a student’s individual music education.
Making music with others is one of the most inspiring and rewarding experiences for any musician. Group play affords great opportunity for extended learning to round out their building musicianship including teamwork, patience, flexibility and accountability. Additionally, they will learn about proper care and transport of gear, stage set-up, advertising & promotion, booking shows, communicating with sound engineers, and much more.
Students in our performance ensemble programs benefit from experiencing a variety of performance opportunities. During 2016 - 2017 our various ensembles had the opportunity to perform at the following venues:
McMenamin’s, Broken Top Bottle Shop, The Riverhouse on the Deschutes, Awbrey Glen Golf Club, Pronghorn Resort, Tetherow Club, The Tower Theatre, Touchmark, The Domino Room, Stone Lodge, First Friday’s downtown Bend, SummerFest, Astro Lounge, and the Bend Roots Festival, just to name a few.
