About Group Classes and Events
All group events are included in your GAMA tuition and signup is available on a first-come first-serve basis.
Group Performance Classes are an excellent way to practice playing in front of other students in a low-pressure and supportive environment. Classes last about 35-55 minutes each and involve no more than 6 participants. These classes are open to all ages and levels and often involve an eclectic mix of students.
You are encouraged to participate even if you have an incomplete piece. Performance classes are for fun and playing in a group setting, and perfection is absolutely not required! Exact class details are emailed the week of the class. ALL students are encouraged to participate, regardless of instrument!
Jazz/Pop Jam Sessions
Jam Sessions are for any students high-school age and up who are interested in learning the basics of jazz and jamming/improvising with other musicians. Typical jam sessions might include improvisation games, learning simple chord progressions, and coaching on playing in a group.
These sessions typically last 30-45 minutes depending on class size, and are open to all instruments! Since we are a piano-heavy school, Jam Sessions will take place in the Recital Hall, and an extra piano will be provided. Jam Sessions are open to ALL levels, even beginners!
“Coffee and Composition” with John Henderson
We’re excited to start offering even more FREE group events to all of our students and parents, starting with an introductory class for those interested in learning how to compose music. This class will be led by John Henderson, one of our very talented pianists, and is open to the public!
This 60-minute class will start at 11AM sharp; as the title suggests, coffee (and water) will be provided.
