What Is Musicianship?

Musicianship is an important component of a well-rounded music education. Weekly musicianship classes include sight-singing, rhythmic reading, dictation, keyboard skills, and music theory, history, and literature.

•    Achieve greater competency and enjoyment at your instrument
•    Increase your ability to think critically and express musical ideas effectively
•    Share your love of music with fellow students
MIC private instruction students of all ages are strongly encouraged to complement their lessons with a musicianship class of the appropriate level and receive a deep discount on this added value experience.


Are Musicianship Classes for Everyone?
•    The musicianship program is designed for students age 5 - adult
•    Private instruction students under the age of 5 may enroll in a Musikgarten class in place of musicianship for only the cost of materials.
•    Adult students are encouraged to take specially designed adult musicianship offerings.


How do I know which class is right for me?

Please contact a campus director for placement guidance.
