FAQ:

All classes will include a full 45-minutes of playing for your students.  Students will be engaged, with instruments in hand.

We’ll do activities like the ones demonstrated in these videos above.

In the process, your students will learn how to play in a variety of styles. They’ll improve their rhythm, improvisation, ear training, and technique.  

The problem with clinicians and private lessons is that they’re costly.

We’re making quality instruction financially accessible to all by hosting our classes online and using a pay-what-you-can model so every student can attend regardless of what district they live in.  It’s like Uber ride-sharing but for the orchestra classroom.

Yes!   Some online classes are boring or hard to tailor to students of different levels and musical backgrounds.  But our classes engage students without the need for a shared repertoire. 

Modifications are also offered for all ability levels so no student gets lost or bored. 

JOIN US LIVE ON ZOOM at ONE OF OUR UPCOMING EVENTS

All classes are funded by a combination of sponsorships and donations.  We ask that schools and organizations that can afford to contribute do so upon registration to ensure that we can continue to provide these opportunities to all students. Special thanks to our sponsor, D’Addario, for providing the seed funding for this project.
