In addition to our in-home lessons, we are now offering group-playing opportunities at our Setauket studio! These ensembles are primarily for guitar, bass guitar, piano, drums, and vocalists, but All instruments are welcome including brass and woodwind players. We also offer guitar and string ensembles for those interested. Our curriculum is based mainly on Rock, Jazz, and Blues music, and in addition to performance focuses on improvisation, ear training, theory, rhythmic sense, and score reading.
Our goals are to provide a group-performance setting—we will provide performance opportunities!—encourage teamwork, instill confidence, and create well-rounded musicians. We use music software in addition to free recordings, notebooks, and musical scores. String Sound Studios t-shirts are also provided. Our ensembles are taught by experienced music professionals.
Bands are grouped by ability level (basic, novice, intermediate, advanced), but members are encouraged to name their individual groups ( i.e. “American Garage” ). As these ensembles are supplemental to school music programs and private lessons, we encourage at least some experience on your instrument, including reading music.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please call us at 631-476-8946 to schedule an appointment to come down and see a rehearsal.
