Lessons at Largesse

Private lessons are the primary mode of instruction for Largesse students. Private instruction provides an opportunity to work through the basics of the instrument, details of new technique, and to carefully prepare new repertoire. Every step of learning is taken with an eye to preparing for the most advanced pieces right from day one. Experience tells us that achieving a high level of ability requires a close collaborative effort between teacher, student and parent.

Music is a community activity, and regularly meeting with other musicians to share your passion for music, to play and learn together, is an essential part of any musical education. A Largesse, a weekly Group Lesson is part of standard registration. Group sessions are overlapped to provide opportunity for students of different levels to interact with, learn from, and be inspired by each other.

Parents are expected to attend all private and group lessons to allow them to provide proper support to the student during practice sessions at home. While the parent’s role will change over time, the active engagement of parents is an important part of student success at any age. At Largesse we feel that community support is a key to musical growth, and encourage parents to share experiences, tips, challenges and successes with each other.
