Group lessons are the perfect opportunity to improve your musicianship without taking time from individual lessons. Group lessons focus on collaboration and practical musical skills. Collaboration is one of the key foundations of group music lessons. The classes are run in groups so students can support one another and share what they are learning. Each singer can come in and build camaraderie with others based on the shared language of music. This group function creates a low-pressure environment where students can progress both together and individually. Group lessons offer virtual music lessons to help minimize your commute and maximize your music-making.
The other emphasis of group music lessons is targeting the musicianship skills you need to fulfill your creative desires. Group music classes can help you learn to accompany or
produce your songs. When you take group music classes with AVS, you can let the instructor know what your individual goals are as a musician. The class can then help focus on ways to collaborate and help you achieve milestones.
Group music lessons are designed with singers in mind. Singers often require different musicianship skills than a standard music theory class covers. AVS tailors the group lessons to the music theory, piano, and production skills that singers need, without spending time on repetitive theory lessons that do not directly apply to their goals for music-making. Targeted group lessons are also a way to maximize your learning. You can learn from your colleagues and you will save time on individual lessons. Supplementing your private lessons with group classes will help you grow exponentially toward your music-making goals. As a singer, you must know the skills needed to read sheet music, play your pieces, and produce music at a high level. Group music lessons target the skills each singer needs to excel, regardless of the genre in which the singer specializes.
AVS Group Lessons introduce “piano for the vocalist” and “theory for the vocalist,” which teach practical musicianship skills that directly apply to the songs you want to play and sing. In these classes, you get playing right away. Arabella’s Voice Studio holds the belief that learning comes from playing. Students learn the main concepts of each class by using the classics and top-hit songs they know and love.
“Piano for the Vocalist” focuses on progressive piano lessons to help singers play all of their favorite songs. The workbook offers suggestions for how to begin a piece, so you can immediately start playing. Throughout the book, ideas are offered for how a student can increase the complexity of the piece. Students can choose their level of comfort and ability. The workbook also introduces music theory concepts, so you can understand musicianship from real-world examples in the songs you want to play and sing.
Because AVS group classes are targeted at singers, the classes are efficient to help you avoid unnecessary filler exercises and skills that are not directly related to your work. This will help you maximize your time in the lessons, so you can focus on music-making. From day one in group lessons, you will be directly interacting with the music you enjoy. Each class will be focused on learning the skills needed to play the songs you want to play, whether you like jazz, musical theatre, pop, country, or any other genre. You will also love hearing the music your classmates love. You will grow from the multi-disciplinary, cross-genre approach to music education.
You can come in with whatever skills you have and learn to make music with the people around you. The welcoming, collaborative environment will help you embrace the energy and strength that comes from working with other musicians. All of the group classes at AVS are taught by professionals who care about seeing their students grow. Through the group setting, students can learn in a low-pressure, collaborative environment. Yet, no student will be overlooked. Each student in the group classes will still be able to set and achieve individual goals related to their personal development.

Attended one of Arabella’s singer workshops and it was such a safe, diverse, and lovely space to engage with other singers/musicians!
