Brooklyn Music School group guitar lessons are a great introduction for beginning younger students ages 5 to 8 years old.  Group lessons are one hour long and students are paired together based on age ranges.  BMS group lessons help establish a foundation for playing the instrument while introducing students to a range of musical traditions and techniques.

Most importantly, the classes help instill a love of music that will last a lifetime. Group lessons for the younger students are filled with fun activities to help keep them engaged in the class. They are a natural stepping stone to private guitar instruction with BMS's world-class guitar faculty.

BMS can help to create group lessons in any particular instrument in response to student demand.

 Group lessons cover fundamentals, including:

  • Proper fretting and picking hand techniques
  • Playing in a group environment
  • Note reading and note recognition on the fretboard
  • Introduction to chords
  • Learning songs
  • Music appreciation

Keyboard classes at the Brooklyn Music School, suitable for children 4 to 8 years old, extend from its tradition in offering world-class piano instruction. We apply the same concepts that students learn in private lessons at the Brooklyn Music School and that our graduates have taken with them to some of the finest conservatories in the world. Classes are taught by BMS's outstanding piano faculty who bring both rigor and fun to your learners.

Students are taught the particulars of proper piano technique and apply them to the songs they play and eventually perform. Basic concepts of music theory including notation on the grand staff are taught and applied to the keyboard, giving the students a firm knowledge that they can continue to apply to advanced piano studies via private lessons or any other instrument of their choosing.

Students learn how to play and eventually perform with both hands in a solo setting and also in a group setting.

Musical theater can introduce a whole new dimension to learning music, by combining voice, movement, dance, and acting to create new friendships and memorable performances.
