1) Truly Sincere teachers/masters who enjoy the work that they do and they do it in a manner that makes the student want to learn music.
2) The feel that the Band gives the kids, a sense of belonging, realizing the need to work together to bring their efforts to fruition is priceless!
1. The staff is super kind and helpful
2. My child gets to learn not only an instrument but how to work in a band. A real skill they may use later in life.
3. They work with you to make it affordable.
1. It would be nice to have some competition within the bands for solo's or main parts or songs. If a person doesn't know a song, I don't think they should be performing it. Maybe scale back and know 2-3 songs really great instead of 4-6 and they are just okay to maybe even bad.
2. It would be cool if a kid has maybe earned a solo, even a 15 second one during a song, they could do that. Or at the beginning of the shows introduce each band member and they do a 5 second thing on their instrument. I think it would get the crowd into it.
Our daughter, who is 6, has only been in the Little Wings and most recently the Rookies program. My wife and I think that both programs do a great job of combining music theory and how songs are structured within the framework of rock and roll. We feel both programs provide an excellent foundation for our daughter's love of music.
My instructor is able to teaches advanced technique and music theory. He's also very versatile, able to teach jazz & metal. Conor Brogan is one of the best guitar teachers I've worked with in 20 years of playing.
Many things. I like that every kid is encouraged no matter their skill level. I love that individual success is promoted. I love the staff. They truly endeavor to build up each kid. They do not shy away from creatong accessibility for all.
I like how the teachers/staff connect with the kids and work with them to do their best, as well as to improve. I feel like my kid is safe there and that the school staff has his best interest in mind. The kids are encouraged to be themselves and to let their individuality shine through.
You are teaching incredibly talented and creative children how to open up and come out of their shell. These kids would normally be introverted and shy.... SOR allows an outlet for them to channel that energy into something great and makes them more social as well.
