What Is Musicianship?
MIC's Musicianship Program is the key to a complete and well-rounded musical education. By increasing the understanding of the language of music and studying music literature and history, students achieve greater competency and enjoyment at their instruments.  Musicianship classes are essential to the student’s awareness of all the elements of music.  They provide a group experience that allows students to share their love of music with peers, while increasing their ability to think critically and express ideas effectively through discussion of musical issues.

All students registered for private lessons at the Music Institute are offered musicianship classes at a deep discount as an added value to their private lesson experience. 

Weekly group classes include:
    • sight-singing
    • rhythmic reading
    • dictation
    • music theory
    • music history
    • keyboard skills

Are musicianship classes for everyone? YES!

  • Students age 5 and above may enter the musicianship program
  • Private instruction students under the age of 5 may enroll in a Musikgarten class in place of musicianship for only the cost of family materials.
  • Adult students are encouraged to take specially designed adult musicianship offerings.

How do I know which class is right for me?
