Elevating Voices, directed by David Pencil, is a monthly group Enrichment class for our experienced students who enjoy singing worship songs. Combining the Voice Ensemble and Praise Band models, the theme of this Enrichment Class is “Elevating Voices”. The vocal ensemble will be accompanied by David Pencil on keyboard as they sing in harmony to bring some of the best songs for modern worship to life. Rehearsals are once per month scheduled on first Tuesdays from 6:30-7:15. Performances include the Georgetown Christmas Stroll and Red Poppy Festival each academic year.

Creative Strings, directed by Jamie See, is a monthly enrichment peer group opportunity for our enrolled students as a varied format to their weekly private lessons. This will provide a fun motivating opportunity to expand student’s musical understanding of their instrument to include ensembles as well as fiddling fun. The group setting develops important ensemble skills like rhythmic accuracy and musicianship while enjoying the exhilaration of hearing the melody supported with harmonization. The monthly class is tentatively scheduled on 1st Tuesdays at 6:30-7:15.

The Piano Ensemble is scheduled as a monthly class for our private students to enjoy the rhythmic excitement of a peer group.  The piano has traditionally been a lonely instrument but now duet and ensemble performance has proven to enhance motivation and rhythmic accuracy. Each student will be assigned different parts of the music ensemble as a piano group or multiple instruments to create an atmosphere of achievement and commitment with their music partners. Dolce will also use this opportunity to implement a better comprehension of music theory, technique, and rhythmic accuracy.

Chamber Ensemble is a monthly peer group providing intermediate and advanced students with goals and opportunity for group performance. Alena Kamchatna will direct the chamber group for violin, piano, and cello scheduled on Wednesdays beginning January 8th from 4:45-5:30 with following classes on February 5th, March 4th, April 1st, and performance April 26th. Performances include the Christmas Stroll in December and the Red Poppy Festival in April each academic year.

Folk Rock Band directed by Ron Tindle, is a half hour monthly enrichment peer group opportunity for our enrolled students as a varied format to their weekly private lessons. Each group setting helps develop important skills like playing in time with others, playing by ear, improvising, and singing in tune as a band. This supplement will enhance a better understanding of rhythm to give a great foundation to other musical settings. Ron’s students will have input as to the music they select whether country, folk, rock, or worship. This will provide an excellent balance for music education designed for motivation and success.
