Group Classes

Our Instrumental & Vocal Music Program (group classes) provides beginning musicians, and those with previous experience, the opportunity to develop their expressive life through music.

Students gain knowledge in instrumental technique, musical knowledge, and musical skills, all while maturing personally and educationally. As students move through the sequential-based curriculum by achieving set goals, the experience becomes deeper and more rigorous, eventually preparing students for entry into Merit’s premier program, the Alice S. Pfaelzer Conservatory.
