What are the benefits of group classes?
With Wentworth School of Music offering Group Piano Lessons, many of you may be wondering what benefits you can gain from group lessons in comparison to individual lessons. Here are five ways group lessons may help students learn to play more effectively.
When learning to play the piano in a group, students get comfortable playing in front of other people (in addition to their teacher). Doing so helps them to build self-confidence and makes it easier to transition into playing in front of an audience outside of the group.
2. Less Pressure
When learning a new skill one-on-one, some students may sometimes feel nervous which can hinder their learning process. The group dynamic helps to alleviate that stress. By having the teachers’ focus divided amongst students, it creates a more relaxed environment with less direct pressure.
Instead of just the direct pressure from the teacher, the spirit of positive competition helps to motivate students. Often they will see others in their group play and will want to be as good, or better, than them. This helps continuously push everyone in the group to be the best they can be.
Learning in a group creates the opportunity for students to meet new friends who share a common interest. Who knows, members may end up collaborating with lesson mates down the road on a recording project or in a band!
Lastly, in a group lesson, the teacher can facilitate team activities that require all participants to work together. These can include each group member playing a piece of one song, playing games, critiquing each other, and more. As a result, the group members reinforce and support each other’s learning.
