Ensemble Program - Ensembles for Children & Adults

Experience the joy of making music with other students in one of The Music Studio's exciting ensembles. Joining an ensemble is a great way to further develop your musical skills and confidence in a relaxed learning environment while making new friends.

The Music Studio's ensembles are designed for children and adults who are comfortable with at least the basics of their instrument, and are intended to complement a student's private lessons. Students are organized according to musical interests, skill level and age.
